The Celestial Lands

Population20.372 billion

CapitalUniversal City
LeaderNikko Mayzuka


The Government of The Celestial Lands is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Nikko Mayzuka with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.372 billion Celestians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universal City. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Celestian economy, worth a remarkable 1,223 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 60,034 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Celestial Lands's national animal is the Arceus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunacy.

The Celestial Lands is ranked 218,845th in the world and 7,698th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.59 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
