The Holy Empire of Kromkarie is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 213 million Kromkarieans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The thriving Kromkariean economy, worth 15.3 trillion Kroms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 71,949 Kroms, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, there's no weight to modern politics, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Kromkarie's national animal is the Poocheski, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kromkarie is ranked 31,206th in the world and 6th in Skyreach for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,796.05 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
