The Technocracy of The New Crimson Directorate is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Davius Gureisky with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 892 million 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Scintillam. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Crimson Directoratean economy, worth 70.1 trillion Crimson Denariis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,598 Crimson Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and Davius Gureisky's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. 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 9,877th in the world and 298th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,950.78 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
