The Principality of Costa Celestia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Her Royal Highness Queen Cassiopiea with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.733 billion Costa Celestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prucan City. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Costa Celestian economy, worth 457 trillion Celestian Drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 52,398 Celestian Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costa Celestia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Wicca.
