Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Casm is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Richard II with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.267 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chesm. The average income tax rate is 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Casmic economy, worth a remarkable 2,337 trillion Casmen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 190,525 Casmen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and all news sources are under strict government control. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violet.

Casm is ranked 115,145th in the world and 3,677th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 21.25 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
