The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 33.175 billion Crystal Palaisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mare Crisium. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 10,886 trillion solaris a year, is quite specialized and dominated by 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 328,153 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and on-duty Air Crystal Palais flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. 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 180,980th in the world and 14th in The Heartland for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -39.17 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
