The Kingdom of Casm is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Richard II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.697 billion Casmites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chesm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Casmic economy, worth a remarkable 2,794 trillion Casmen a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 204,013 Casmen, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy theorists allege Chesm's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Casm is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and there is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Violet.

Casm is ranked 163,839th in the world and 5,502nd in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.5 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
