The Imperial Republic of Krandor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord-Regulator Tanbris with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.693 billion Krandorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bavaria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Krandorian economy, worth a remarkable 6,055 trillion Allied Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 477,070 Allied Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Taxpayers cringe whenever someone brings up the Former Antagonist Reparations Treaty, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krandor's national animal is the Blackbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Krandor is ranked 239,029th in the world and 1st in Krandor for Fattest Citizens, with 2.15 Obesity Rate.
