The Holy Red Fishdom of Crawdad Town is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Despot Kray Feshu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, enforced nudity, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.054 billion Crawdads are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Crawdad economy, worth 290 trillion Obs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 141,660 Obs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,283,413 per year while the poor average 1,842, a ratio of 696 to 1.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Bonetown" has been described as a real blow for entertainment, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Crawdad Town's national animal is the Crawfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Individualism.

Crawdad Town is ranked 138,552nd in the world and 12th in Greater Necanica for Most Average, scoring 32.32 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
