Crystal Ball

Population179 million


The Republic of Crystal Ball is a very large, pleasant nation, notable for its burgeoning horse population. The hard-working population of 179 million Crystal Ballians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 19.8%.

The Crystal Ballian economy, worth 7.66 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 42,805 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crystal Ball's national animal is the horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Crystal Ball is ranked 109,818th in the world and 574th in Artificial Solar System for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.

Most Average: 8,039th
