The Principality of Krovel is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 349 million Krovelians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strov. The average income tax rate is 34.2%.

The very strong Krovelian economy, worth 22.2 trillion Tavas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 63,712 Tavas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nuclear bases are readying themselves for missile deployment, the nation is weighing the price of victory following a nuclear strike, lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krovel's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Krovel is ranked 43,734th in the world and 72nd in Conch Kingdom for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63 on the Rand Index.
