The People's Republic of The Crooked Beat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Star Child with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.186 billion Crooked Beatians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Crooked Beatian economy, worth a remarkable 9,544 trillion Pyramids a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 271,256 Pyramids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Crooked Beat City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects. Crime is totally unknown. The Crooked Beat's national animal is the Unfunky UFO, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Crooked Beat is ranked 214,376th in the world and 11th in A Modern World for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -46.71 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
