The Democratic Republic of Crystalsummer is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.732 billion Crystalsummerians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Lake. The average income tax rate is 23.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Crystalsummerian economy, worth 489 trillion Crystals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,272 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Crystalsummer's national animal is the Elephant.

Crystalsummer is ranked 107,228th in the world and 350th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Average Incomes, with 50,272.27 Standard Monetary Units.
