The Empire of Krutia is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.418 billion Krutians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.1%.

The very strong Krutian economy, worth 272 trillion Kruts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 79,755 Kruts, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krutia's national animal is the Snake, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Krutia is ranked 80,926th in the world and 1,650th in Chicken overlords for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.25 on the Rand Index.
