LeaderChancellor Matthias von Held


The Federal Republic of Crestphalia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Matthias von Held with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.131 billion Crestphalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu-Starzberg. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crestphalian economy, worth 834 trillion eMarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,062 eMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crestphalia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Crestphalia is ranked 12,768th in the world and 155th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 23.13 Bank.
