The United Kingdom of Crysanthem is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cumalene von Niev with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.536 billion Crysanthemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esther. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Crysanthemian economy, worth 114 trillion Litoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 74,367 Litoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, planespotters are emigrating in droves, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crysanthem's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lysia Inostri.

Crysanthem is ranked 209,990th in the world and 713th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 46.15 Whatever.
