The Lucky Holy Pink Zombie Santa of Cretox State is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen 01 with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 1.684 billion Januians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cretox State City. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cretox Statean economy, worth 224 trillion Gold Bars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,452 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by Citizen 01 after national disasters, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. 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 bat ghost cow vampire, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russallian Taipotism.

Cretox State is ranked 205,132nd in the world and 9,262nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -101.44 on the Hayek Index.
