The Constitutional Monarchy of Dick Celeste is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 8.05 billion Dick Celesteans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Dick Celestean economy, worth 469 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,370 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, the Dick Celeste City Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section, helicopter parenting is on the rise, and back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dick Celeste's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dick Celeste is ranked 156,382nd in the world and 108th in Ashen Fields for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
