The Confederated Kingdom of Krionik is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Marshal Petrovic with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.225 billion Kriosaivaks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Industry and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vazgorod. The average income tax rate is 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Krionikian economy, worth 102 trillion Mazyrs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 46,070 Mazyrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Krionik's national animal is the Raven and its national religion is The Trostrukai.

Krionik is ranked 147,734th in the world and 6,109th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.

Most Average: 575th in the region
