The Kingdom of Old World Order is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Darius Banovic I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.394 billion Croats of old world are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zagreb. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Croatian economy, worth 616 trillion Kunas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,202 Kunas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, the most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father", and sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old World Order's national animal is the Croatian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Old World Order is ranked 187,308th in the world and 693rd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
