The Federal People's Republic of The Celtic Islets is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Séamus Ó hEaghra with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.998 billion Celts 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 Education, Law & Order, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebláine. The average income tax rate is 97%. 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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Celtic Islets's national animal is the stag, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Celtic dollar.

The Celtic Islets is ranked 218th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 116,381st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
