The Kingdom of Casm is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Richard II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.773 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 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Casmic economy, worth a remarkable 2,427 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 190,015 Casmen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

All news sources are under strict government control, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. 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 145,572nd in the world and 4,224th in Osiris for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 12.1 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
