The Empire of Krystalveil is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The 3 Emperors with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.786 billion Krystalveilians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemon City - Apollo. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,555 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 328,230 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cigarettes are dead-cheap, one does not simply walk into the tundra, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 1,350th in the world and 26th in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 99.56 Effective Tax Rate.
