The Republic of Kroken is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arne with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.686 billion Krokenians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 12.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,700 trillion Trilqis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,248 Trilqis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kroken is ranked 61,016th in the world and 3,084th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 316.52 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
