The Allied States of Crack of Doom is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.049 billion Crack of Doomians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doom. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Crack of Doomian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Mad generations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Soda Sales. Average income is 6,162 Mad generations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and Crack of Doom has designated Doom as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crack of Doom's national animal is the sailor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crack of Doom is ranked 204,764th in the world and 20th in Gay Equality for Highest Average Incomes, with 6,162.96 Standard Monetary Units.
