The Democratic Republic of Krystallum is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Jon Toast with a fair hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 10.481 billion Krystallumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.

The thriving Krystallumian economy, worth 721 trillion Krystallumian Marls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 68,878 Krystallumian Marls, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krystallum's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Krystallum is ranked 123,529th in the world and 188th in Concord for Most Primitive, scoring -27.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
