OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Casm is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Justus Marn with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed population of 8.357 billion Casmons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chesm. The average income tax rate is 15%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Information Technology.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Casm Blood Tithe, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Casm's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is non-existent, and its currency is the Casman.

Casm is ranked 19th in The Versutian Federation and 16,644th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2 on the Hayek Index.
