The Celtic Islets

Population26.108 billion

LeaderPresident Séamus Ó hEaghra


The Federal People's Republic of The Celtic Islets is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Séamus Ó hEaghra with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 26.108 billion Celts hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebláine. The average income tax rate is 93.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Celtic economy, worth a remarkable 2,712 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 an impressive 103,887 déanáirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Ebláine to enjoy their national art, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. 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.

The Celtic Islets is ranked 4,319th in the world and 58th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.27 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
