The People's Republic of Crestphalia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Wolfgang Harich with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.619 billion Crestphalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Germania. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Crestphalian economy, worth 892 trillion Euros 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,814 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, they who do not work shall not eat, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crestphalia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Crestphalia is ranked 7,781st in the world and 110th in Europe for Largest Governments, scoring 35.96 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
