The Empire of Nas Crustium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Business with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.734 billion Nas Crustiumians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Nas Crustiumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 393,056 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,180,386 per year while the poor average 35,590, a ratio of 61.3 to 1.

Bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. 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 Cult of the Divine Emperor.

Nas Crustium is ranked 1,826th in the world and 26th in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 68,777.9 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
