The Armed Republic of Celtician is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Donn with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.687 billion Celts are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tech Duinn. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Celticianian economy, worth an astonishing 17,720 trillion Oricalcums 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 a breathtaking 817,080 Oricalcums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Celtician's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of Donn.

Celtician is ranked 36th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 115.94 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
