The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 34.27 billion Crystal Palaisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Crisium. The average income tax rate is 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 11,424 trillion solaris a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 333,361 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The newest shade developed by Crystal Palais's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', anti-government web sites are springing up, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is totally unknown. Crystal Palais's national animal is the mantlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Crystal Palais is ranked 23,798th in the world and 4th in The Heartland for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
