The Federal Republic of Craftsmania is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 294 million Craftsmanians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blocksburg. The average income tax rate is 43.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Craftsmanian economy, worth 27.7 trillion Craftsmanian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 94,208 Craftsmanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, and on-duty Air Craftsmania flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Craftsmania's national animal is the Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Craftsmania is ranked 149,704th in the world and 5,844th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.62 Obesity Rate.
