The United Dominion of Caspian Settlement is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Caspian Navasse with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.915 billion Caspian Settlers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great New Caspian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.9%.

The strong Caspian Settler economy, worth 317 trillion Denarii 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 81,055 Denarii, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

People spend a lot on hair and nails, the government is spending millions to provide full health care for all citizens, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caspian Settlement's national animal is the Saltwater Crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Meritism.

Caspian Settlement is ranked 35,154th in the world and 1,308th in the Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,458.52 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
