The Democratic Republic of New Cryal is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Honorable Pontifex Maximus with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.101 billion New Cryalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crytopia. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Cryalian economy, worth 97.2 trillion Cryalons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 88,260 Cryalons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cryal's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Cryal is ranked 39,457th in the world and 104th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 69.94 on the Human Development Index.
