The Government of The Celestial Lands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nikko Maysuka with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.592 billion Celestians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Universal City. The average income tax rate is 84.8%.

The strong Celestian economy, worth a remarkable 1,005 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 57,147 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Celestial Lands's national animal is the Arceus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunacy.

The Celestial Lands is ranked 13,795th in the world and 707th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,005 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
