The Glorious and Serene Harmony of Kriov is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kraceng Krumos with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.737 billion Kriovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekriovia. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kriovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,754 trillion krubors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 111,342 krubors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", they who do not work shall not eat, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kriov's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kriov is ranked 27,675th in the world and 523rd in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 210.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
