OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Casm is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Justus Marn with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 8.323 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 16%, 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.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, Casm's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 80th in The Versutian Federation and 16,371st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 24 on the Enoch Index.
