The Dominion of Crystal Palais is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Michael Lucerne with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 34.822 billion Crystal Palaisians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Crystal Palaisian economy, worth an astonishing 11,613 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 333,512 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Michael Lucerne to meetings with foreign heads of state, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Michael Lucerne For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Michael Lucerne's supporters, and the horniness of the great-horned mantlion is considered a national priority. 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 9,860th in the world and 2nd in The Heartland for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,373.68 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
