The Confederacy of Glorystic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Maximus XIV with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.343 billion Glorysticians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gloristica. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Glorystician economy, worth 165 trillion Crystal Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,291 Crystal Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, Maximus XIV's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Glorystician citizenship in droves, and visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorystic's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Glorystic is ranked 157,908th in the world and 6,200th in Balder for Largest Black Market, with 51.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
