The Nomadic Legion of Cruciland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Keysar David Aryelev with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.649 billion Crucilandians 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokhavkiryah. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Crucilandian economy, worth an astonishing 10,883 trillion Niqudas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 742,945 Niqudas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Crucilandians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, most Crucilandians would sell their own grandmother, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cruciland's national animal is the sabertoothed cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Historical Christianity.

Cruciland is ranked 176,270th in the world and 17th in Fifth Empire for Most Politically Free, scoring 16.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
