The Congress of The-Crow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kamadeva with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.266 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 69.0%.

The all-consuming The-Crowian economy, worth a remarkable 2,323 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, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 109,278 Cashews, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 367,991 per year while the poor average 24,042, a ratio of 15.3 to 1.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news. 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 217,353rd in the world and 13th in Hyrule for Highest Food Quality, scoring 6.4 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
