The Empire of Nas Crustium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Emperor of the Crusti with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.305 billion Crusti are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crusticant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Crusti economy, worth a remarkable 5,145 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 619,583 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,733,880 per year while the poor average 6,462, a ratio of 887 to 1.

Major cities run on potato batteries, when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and Crusti scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nas Crustium's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Nas Crustium is ranked 33,083rd in the world and 197th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 81.33 on the Rand Index.
