The Republic of Kastagistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Victor Muller with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.508 billion Kastanos 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walpole. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kastano economy, worth 174 trillion Solkas 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 115,956 Solkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kastagistan's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholic.

Kastagistan is ranked 6,163rd in the world and 16th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,439.5 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
