The Kingdom of Kastonvia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Dobroslav the II with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.315 billion Kastonvians 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, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernogorsk. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kastonvian economy, worth 142 trillion Tolars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,707 Tolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Kastonvian as 'your finger, you fool'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kastonvia's national animal is the Mountain Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kastonvia is ranked 209,643rd in the world and 8,510th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.24 Obesity Rate.
