The All-Encompassing Glory of Castelia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Adalbert Corvinius with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 8.137 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The large, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,371 trillion mordons a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 291,395 mordons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and Castelians believe manners maketh the leader. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The High Church of Castelia.

Castelia is ranked 242,603rd in the world and 40th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Primitive, scoring -634.38 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
