The Empire of Kractero is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.289 billion Kracterians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cochin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kracterian economy, worth a remarkable 7,287 trillion Kracterian Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 421,507 Kracterian Escudoes, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't meet government health standards are whisked away never to be seen again, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kractero's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Unaffiliated.

Kractero is ranked 124th in the world and 1st in The Burning Legion for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 39,044.64 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
