The Atmospheric Archipelago of Celestial UPC is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, disturbing lack of elderly people, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.119 billion Celestial UPCians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 63.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Celestial UPCian economy, worth 405 trillion Cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 129,950 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and motels cater primarily to adulterers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Celestial UPC's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Celestial UPC is ranked 207,667th in the world and 134th in Sky Haven for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
