The Comply or Die of Kranostav is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Most Honorable Fredrich Huber with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12.844 billion Kranostavians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybor. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kranostavian economy, worth a remarkable 2,114 trillion Traviks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,605 Traviks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Agricultural employees work for peanuts, dissident voters are sent on a 'relaxing break' at the Ministry of Love, one can walk from one side of Vybor to the other without setting foot on Kranostavian soil, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kranostav's national animal is the Desert Muskrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elder Tactedda.

Kranostav is ranked 20,520th in the world and 1,078th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,119.29 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
