The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.898 billion Crystal Palaisians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Crisium. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 13,471 trillion solaris a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 346,319 solaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Crystal Palais's national animal is the mantlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Crystal Palais is ranked 393rd in the world and 1st in The Heartland for Highest Poor Incomes, with 288,312.3 Standard Monetary Units.
