The Armed State of Crowtania is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Harald II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.538 billion Crowtanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Longevo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Crowtanian economy, worth 499 trillion Crowtanian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 196,857 Crowtanian Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, artists are pillars of society, and many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Crowtania's national animal is the High Alps Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jingoism.

Crowtania is ranked 241,345th in the world and 9,360th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 30.97 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
