The United Provinces of Krytenia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Maria II with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29.307 billion Krytenians 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 Law & Order, although Education, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emberton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Krytenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,665 trillion argentals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 159,210 argentals, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, the nation excels at displacement, begun the Clone Wars have, and children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krytenia's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Krytenia is ranked 188,707th in the world and 170th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.27 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
