The Federation of Krimera is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Viktor Kruschev with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.047 billion Krimerans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kremaras. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Krimeran economy, worth a remarkable 4,668 trillion Marxes 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 516,006 Marxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, diaper sales are up, the new Krimeran-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, and neighboring nations are tired of Krimera's big fish stories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krimera's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Krimera is ranked 1,056th in the world and 1st in Novus Lucidum for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 24,064.87 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
