The Beastling States of Crystal Spires is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by High Chancellor Calisté Chenarn with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.28 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltris. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The enormous but inefficient Spirean economy, worth a remarkable 3,343 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 highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 143,618 Signets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The World Beastling States Games have been won again by Crystal Spires as no other country cares enough to compete, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Spirean language, and jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians. 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 1,810th in the world and 2nd in Mystria for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,603.48 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
