The Sometimes Author Republic of Castarilia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 624 million Castarilians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Messolina. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Castarilian economy, worth 52.1 trillion Siolas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,417 Siolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and robosexual marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castarilia's national animal is the Pouncing Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Castarilia is ranked 187,218th in the world and 282nd in Thaecia for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.97 Crimes Per Hour.
