The Federal People's Republic of The Celtic Islets is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Séamus Ó hEaghra with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 19.707 billion Celts hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebláine. The average income tax rate is 93.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Celtic economy, worth a remarkable 1,962 trillion déanáirs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,597 déanáirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Ebláine to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Celtic Islets's national animal is the stag, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
