Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Cristalina is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.062 billion 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 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 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cristalinan economy, worth 118 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 111,423 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, and Cristalina's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. 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 37,524th in the world and 948th in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
