The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.38 billion Crystal Palaisians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Crisium. The average income tax rate is 6.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 13,293 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 346,371 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. 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 512th in the world and 1st in The Heartland for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.56 Years.
