The Dominion of Crud Grium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord-Ruler Iandrieon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The cynical population of 8.046 billion Crud Griumians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crudiar City. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Crud Griumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,310 trillion Griesses 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 162,867 Griesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, Crud Grium's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Lord-Ruler Iandrieon on Crud Grium's coulrophobia epidemic, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crud Grium's national animal is the Crudian Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crud Grium is ranked 3,568th in the world and 77th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 594.57 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
