The Republic of Krogis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Leo Arason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.812 billion Krogisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raseinkija. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krogisian economy, worth 213 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,850 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Krogisian Embarrassments, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, and cities in Krogis declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krogis's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Krogis is ranked 17,517th in the world and 2nd in Liberal Democratic Union for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,722.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
