The Republic of Crokin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jiun Pûnj with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.444 billion Crokinese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dholj¨lt. The average income tax rate is 61.6%.

The very strong Crokinese economy, worth 255 trillion Uljols a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,233 Uljols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Interest in globalism never flags, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and people's charity begins and ends at home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crokin's national animal is the Làxidhen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thalt¨l.

Crokin is ranked 2,065th in the world and 79th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,176.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
