The Republic of Kroken is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Arne with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.371 billion Krokenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,857 trillion Trilqis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 251,314 Trilqis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place.
