The Garden of Krystalveil is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Theodore I with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.679 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 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,318 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 281,750 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Lemon City Peacocks' triumph against long odds, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Krystalveilians, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 3,374th in the world and 62nd in 10000 Islands for Rudest Citizens, with 182.32 Insults Per Minute.
