The Glorious and Serene Harmony of Kriov is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kraceng Krumos with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.285 billion Kriovians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekriovia. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kriovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,717 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 111,905 krubors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. 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 208,460th in the world and 8,936th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -26.61 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
