The Empire of Krystalveil is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Theodore I with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.347 billion Krystalveilians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemon City. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth 854 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 255,197 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strategic bombers are being converted into preschools, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 216,786th in the world and 1,400th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -383.99 on the Hayek Index.
