The People's Republic of The Crooked Beat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Star Child with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.673 billion Crooked Beatians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Crooked Beatian economy, worth a remarkable 9,445 trillion Pyramids a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 272,425 Pyramids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime is totally unknown. The Crooked Beat's national animal is the Unfunky UFO, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Crooked Beat is ranked 240,418th in the world and 14th in A Modern World for Rudest Citizens, with 4.11 Insults Per Minute.
