The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 36.68 billion Crystal Palaisians 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 relatively small 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 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 12,393 trillion solaris a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 337,886 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime 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 40,111th in the world and 5th in The Heartland for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,926.96 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
