The Empire of Kractero is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.053 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, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 6,707 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 417,824 Kracterian Escudoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,304,071 per year while the poor average 12,888, a ratio of 256 to 1.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Bengal Tigers and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Unaffiliated.

Kractero is ranked 43rd in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3,055.74 Bank.
