The Republic of Kroken is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Arne with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.181 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, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,436 trillion Trilqis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,355 Trilqis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Neslandsvatn, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kroken is ranked 205,058th in the world and 8,992nd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.29 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
