The Baasskap of Krich Aerd is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Groussherzog Leopold Malan III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.212 billion Meesters 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hexenburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Hooggebore economy, worth a remarkable 3,492 trillion Krichrands 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 484,213 Krichrands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Krich Aerd Blood Tithe, the nation tends not to learn from its history, people think "siege mentality" is a positive trait, and foreign envoys that want to visit Krich Aerd now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krich Aerd's national animal is the Roude Liw, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Oranisme.

Krich Aerd is ranked 239,459th in the world and 50th in Farkasfalka for Highest Drug Use, scoring 2.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
