The Armed Republic of Kristallium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gro▀meister Uli with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.684 billion Kristalliumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kristallium City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kristalliumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,798 trillion Allied Stars 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, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. 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 an amazing 457,157 Allied Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military will start wars with other nations on a lark, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Kristalliumian Navy, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, and Gro▀meister Uli's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kristallium's national animal is the Blackbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Kristallium is ranked 1,691st in the world and 3rd in Krandor for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 15,670.76 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
