The Empire of The Celestial Lands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nikko Mayzuka with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.289 billion Celestians 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 Defence, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universal City. The average income tax rate is 74%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
CDs are regularly copy-protected, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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, its national religion is Lunacy, and its currency is the Bitcoin.
