The Empire of The Celestial Lands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nikko Mayzuka with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.938 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 the Environment, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universal City. The average income tax rate is 73%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. 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.

The Celestial Lands is ranked 19th in International Northwestern Union and 4,461st in the world for Best Weather, with 206 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
