The Swordtress of Crusader-45 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.922 billion Crusader-45ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Crusader-45ian economy, worth 97.3 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,629 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, Bambi has been banned, hazmat suits are a common Crusader-45ian garb, and the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Crusader-45's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Crusader-45 is ranked 221,511th in the world and 5,236th in Alliance of Supreme Powers for Fattest Citizens, with 8.91 Obesity Rate.
