Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population8.177 billion



The Republic of Kroken is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arne with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.177 billion Krokenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,874 trillion Trilqis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 229,240 Trilqis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Arne has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Krokenian emissions at all, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and the government spends millions of Trilqis every year prosecuting spammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kroken is ranked 4,048th in the world and 228th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 167.44 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
