The Principality of Costa Celestia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Her Royal Highness Queen Cassiopiea with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.692 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prucan City. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
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. Costa Celestia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Wicca, and its currency is the Celestian Drachma.
