The Empire of Krystalveil is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Theodore I with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.058 billion Krystalveilians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemon City. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth 765 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 250,205 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Krystalveil, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 5,919th in the world and 81st in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 92.97 Effective Tax Rate.
