The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 39.291 billion Crystal Palaisians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small 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 13.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 13,601 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 346,168 solaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, divorce is illegal, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 227,977th in the world and 12th in The Heartland for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1.84 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
