The Dictatorship of North Kroany is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 805 million North Kroanyians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Staintene. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The thriving North Kroanyian economy, worth 59.0 trillion Nomidias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 73,336 Nomidias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,211 per year while the poor average 17,558, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Kroany's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

North Kroany is ranked 21,334th in the world and 32nd in Enadia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,821.46 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
