The Confederacy of Krogis is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 179 million Krogisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 7.7%.

The all-consuming Krogisian economy, worth 15.0 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 83,937 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Krogisian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Krogis's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Krogis is ranked 42,085th in the world and 13th in Novus Lucidum for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,112.77 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
