The Free Land of Celtica Free State is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cu na Celtica with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 9.565 billion Celtics enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Pool. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Celtican economy, worth 869 trillion Erins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,925 Erins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and people are bored of easy crossword puzzles. Crime is totally unknown. Celtica Free State's national animal is the Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Celtica Free State is ranked 142,096th in the world and 4,359th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
