The Empire of Castilistan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 384 million Castilistanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vincula City. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Castilistanian economy, worth 28.1 trillion Castilistan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,136 Castilistan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Castilistan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castilistan's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Castilistan is ranked 24,216th in the world and 3rd in Orlogian Union for Safest, scoring 110.47 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
