The Kretazan Domain of The Great Protectorate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Lord Protector with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.619 billion Protectoratis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kospal. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Protectorai economy, worth 101 trillion Raches a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,575 Raches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, The Great Protectorate is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Protectorai military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Protectorate's national animal is the Kretaza Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bowism.

The Great Protectorate is ranked 126,471st in the world and 91st in Thegye for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 587.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
