The Dictatorship of The Soviet States of Krayev is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dr John Robot with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.076 billion Krayevians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Black Mesa. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krayevian economy, worth 159 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,573 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', school uniforms are compulsory, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Krayevians, and telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 42,900th in the world and 2nd in Robot Industries for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 580.8 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
