The Kombatant of Cassandra Cage is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cassie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.243 billion Cassandra Cageans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earthrealm. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cassandra Cagean economy, worth a remarkable 2,890 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 282,193 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, it turns out that your missing Roomba has run off to join the circus, and the well-off amuse themselves by organizing upstairs-downstairs stories within their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cassandra Cage's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cards.

Cassandra Cage is ranked 20,160th in the world and 1st in Greater Nova York for Most Conservative, scoring 83.25 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
