The People's Republic of Casetaria 2 is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 489 million Casetaria 2ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of casetaria city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Casetaria 2ian economy, worth 50.0 trillion marks 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, broadly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 102,288 marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.
Euthanasia is legal, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and military barracks resemble five-star hotels. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Casetaria 2's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
