The Free Land of 3kruimels is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.678 billion 3kruimelsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient 3kruimelsian economy, worth 70.8 trillion meeples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 42,212 meeples, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and Leader lives life on the open road - complete with groupies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 3kruimels's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

3kruimels is ranked 148,769th in the world and 4,773rd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -0.89 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
