The Democratic Republic of The Crossland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Leo Crossland with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.839 billion Crosslandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bizkit. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Crosslandian economy, worth 908 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,559 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 542,027 per year while the poor average 32,504, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Even God cannot save you in The Crossland, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Crossland's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Shadyism.

The Crossland is ranked 12,556th in the world and 2nd in The Conservative Democracies for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,984.05 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
