The Congress of The-Crow is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kamadeva with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.596 billion devotees 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kama Sutra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The all-consuming The-Crowian economy, worth a remarkable 2,199 trillion Cashews a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,778 Cashews, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 355,398 per year while the poor average 23,905, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

The latest political memes depict Kamadeva as an overly-choreographed robot, the well-to-do in Hyrule are never on time for important appointments, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The-Crow's national animal is the Canary, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lainism.

The-Crow is ranked 31,329th in the world and 5th in Hyrule for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,165.12 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
