The Gameside Advocate of Kastonvia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nowy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 874 million 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernogorsk. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kastonvian economy, worth 96.8 trillion Tolars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 110,808 Tolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Governments opposing Kastonvia are beset by rebels, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kastonvia's national animal is the Mountain Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kastonvia is ranked 63,697th in the world and 2,735th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
