Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Cristalina is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 739 million Cristalinans 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 large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aqua. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cristalinan economy, worth 82.2 trillion Shells a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,167 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Dolphin Lasagne is a hit, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Cristalina, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cristalina's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cristalina is ranked 152,334th in the world and 8,255th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -9.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
