The Garden of Krystalveil is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Theodore I with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.697 billion Krystalveilians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 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 281,299 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 1,471st in the world and 34th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.06 on the Human Development Index.
