The Republic of Crokin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jiun Pûnj̈ with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The devout population of 1.565 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dholj¨lt. The average income tax rate is 51.7%.

The strong Crokinese economy, worth 108 trillion Ulj̈ols a year, is broadly 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 69,339 Ulj̈ols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. 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 107,087th in the world and 4,303rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 19.74 on the Hayek Index.
