CapitalCraams Squirrel District

The Colony of Craams Mal is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bob Yolo with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.319 billion Craams Malians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Craams Squirrel District. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Craams Malian economy, worth 132 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 100,349 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and the dartboard at the Craams Malian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Bob Yolo's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Craams Mal's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nada.

Craams Mal is ranked 61,885th in the world and 3,001st in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,186.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
