The City State of Krystalveil is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Theodore I with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.91 billion Krystalveilians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Étoile. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krystalveilian economy, worth 720 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 247,498 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown. Krystalveil's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krystalveil is ranked 1,938th in the world and 43rd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 97.68 on the Human Development Index.
