The Kingdom of Kryskistan is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 246 million Kryskistanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 33.5%.

The Kryskistanian economy, worth 13.9 trillion Kryk Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 56,307 Kryk Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, and banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kryskistan's national animal is the Polar Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kryskistan is ranked 154,912th in the world and 7,994th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.62 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
