The Federal Republic of Castarria is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 624 million Castarrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latar City. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Castarrian economy, worth 33.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Cheese Exports. Average income is 53,380 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Castarria. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castarria's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Castarria is ranked 200,163rd in the world and 5,748th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 19.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
