The Matriarchy of Kristalmaan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Neo-Queen Serenity with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 7.834 billion Kristalians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Moon-Touched economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Crystals 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,703 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Kristalmaan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kristalmaan's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunacetism.

Kristalmaan is ranked 3,834th in the world and 188th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,784.3 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
