The Dictatorship of Kromkarie is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 357 million Kromkarieans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Banesteppe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.9%.

The thriving Kromkariean economy, worth 26.7 trillion Kroms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 74,731 Kroms, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

There's no weight to modern politics, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Banesteppe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Kromkarie's national animal is the Poocheski, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kromkarie is ranked 156,333rd in the world and 15th in Skyreach for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 27.56 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
