The Dormant Nation of Craiolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Mor Boor with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.782 billion Craiolians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandar. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Craiolian economy, worth 413 trillion Craiols a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,761 Craiols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, diaper sales are up, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Craiolia's national animal is the Green Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Craiolia is ranked 49,736th in the world and 1,926th in the West Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,006.04 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
