The Chronometric Tessera of Cretox State is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Great Big Orange Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.834 billion Statans 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 large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponzify. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient State economy, worth 952 trillion shiny green things a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 197,003 shiny green things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Great Big Orange Leader's bedroom, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cretox State's national animal is the bribe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nepotism.

Cretox State is ranked 2,390th in the world and 136th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 719.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
