The Federation of Krimera is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Viktor Kruschev with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.78 billion Krimerans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kremaras. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Krimeran economy, worth a remarkable 4,097 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 526,675 Marxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", Supreme Leader Viktor Kruschev's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them. 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 191,665th in the world and 40th in Novus Lucidum for Most Politically Free, scoring 8 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
