The Technocracy of The New Crimson Directorate is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Davius Gureisky with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 897 million Crimsonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Scintillam. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Crimson Directoratean economy, worth 71.0 trillion Crimson Denariis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,177 Crimson Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Crimson Directorate's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Crimson Directorate is ranked 23,404th in the world and 601st in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 80 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
