The Federal People's Republic of The Celtic Islets is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Séamus Ó hEaghra with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.457 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.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebláine. The average income tax rate is 93.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Celtic economy, worth a remarkable 1,401 trillion Celtic dollars a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,917 Celtic dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
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, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. 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.
