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 pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.443 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, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kranostavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,999 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 174,710 Traviks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 874,423 per year while the poor average 19,605, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

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 22,856th in the world and 959th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,927.59 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
