The Matriarchy of Kristalmaan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Neo-Queen Serenity with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 5.215 billion Kristalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The all-consuming Moon-Touched economy, worth 644 trillion Crystals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,543 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Distant and obscure female relatives succeed to the Moon-Touched throne, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, and Kristalmaan's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kristalmaan's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunacetism.

Kristalmaan is ranked 12,045th in the world and 673rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.04 on the Human Development Index.
