The Krazy Kakistocracy of Cretox State is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Great Big Orange Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.492 billion Statans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponzify. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Statan economy, worth 864 trillion rectangular numbered things 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 192,465 rectangular numbered things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and Great Big Orange Leader has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cretox State's national animal is the overpaid executive, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nepotism.

Cretox State is ranked 9,972nd in the world and 502nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,888.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
