The Republic of Cassanos is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Cavendish with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.436 billion Cassanosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munstra. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cassanosian economy, worth a remarkable 3,224 trillion Thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,780 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Munstra's playgrounds, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime is totally unknown. Cassanos's national animal is the Black Adder, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cassanos is ranked 6,457th in the world and 5th in A Modern World for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 462.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
