The Beastling States of Crystal Spires is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by High Chancellor Calisté Chenarn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.656 billion Spireans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltris. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The enormous but inefficient Spirean economy, worth a remarkable 2,507 trillion Signets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 142,000 Signets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, the World Beastling States Games have been won again by Crystal Spires as no other country cares enough to compete, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crystal Spires's national animal is the Northern Range Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Forntianism.

Crystal Spires is ranked 9,893rd in the world and 4th in Mystria for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 383.79 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
