The Prismatic Rainbow Paradise of The Seven levels of Heaven is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nameless One with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.489 billion Celestians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradiso. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Seven levels of Heavenian economy, worth 381 trillion Golden Harps 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 40,198 Golden Harps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seven levels of Heaven's national animal is the Angelfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Celestialism.

The Seven levels of Heaven is ranked 287,607th in the world and 1st in Novalia Crystalis for Most Pro-Market, scoring -89.11 on the Rand Index.
