The Dictatorship of The Soviet States of Krayev is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dr John Robot with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.334 billion Krayevians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Mesa. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krayevian economy, worth 565 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,761 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone apparently sends Dr John Robot hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Robot Industries, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Soviet States of Krayev's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Soviet States of Krayev is ranked 195,730th in the world and 2nd in Robot Industries for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
