The Federation of Crognia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 470 million Crogniaks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Crognian economy, worth 10.3 trillion Federative Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Tourism. Average income is 21,978 Federative Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crognia's national animal is the worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
