The Interplanetary Republic of Celestial Wave is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President LunarCrystal with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.896 billion Celestians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LightHaven. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Celestian economy, worth 669 trillion Celestial coins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,831 Celestial coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, snitches get riches, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown. Celestial Wave's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Celestial Wave is ranked 20,607th in the world and 2nd in SolarFlare for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,171.65 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
