Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Kingdom of Crystique is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President Talley with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 767 million Crystiqueans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amethyst DC. The average income tax rate is 31.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Crystiquean economy, worth 87.9 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,623 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

President Talley's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crystique's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Crystique is ranked 87,391st in the world and 3,745th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,251.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
