The Nomadic Community of Crabbiness is a massive, genial nation, ruled by High Brachyura with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.309 billion Crabbies are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a large mobile rock. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Crabbinessian economy, worth 105 trillion Coconuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 31,871 Coconuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, foreign leaders who don't applaud High Brachyura's speeches are regarded as enemies of Crabbiness, and thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crabbiness's national animal is the Crab, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Large Rockism.

Crabbiness is ranked 188,825th in the world and 111th in Yuno for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.11 on the Rand Index.
