The Krazy Kakistocracy of Cretox State is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Great Big Orange Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.259 billion Statans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponzify. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Statan economy, worth 819 trillion rectangular numbered things a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 192,331 rectangular numbered things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cretox State's national animal is the overpaid executive, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nepotism.

Cretox State is ranked 15,178th in the world and 811th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 84.85 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
