The Technocracy of The New Crimson Directorate is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Davius Gureisky with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The quiet, industrious population of 2.558 billion Crimsonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Scintillam. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Crimson Directoratean economy, worth 247 trillion Crimson Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 96,804 Crimson Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Crimson Directorate's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Crimson Directorate is ranked 91,394th in the world and 3,318th in The East Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.9 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
