The Nomadic Peoples of The Crab Kingdom is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 343 million Crabs enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Defense aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The powerhouse Crab Kingdomian economy, worth 24.2 trillion hermit crab shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is 70,582 hermit crab shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 204,415 per year while the poor average 19,313, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Crab Kingdom's national animal is the isopod, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Crab Kingdom is ranked 11,698th in the world and 584th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.3 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
