The Sometimes Author Republic of Castarilia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 618 million Castarilians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Messolina. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Castarilian economy, worth 51.1 trillion Siolas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,735 Siolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, every workday begins with group therapy, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castarilia's national animal is the Pouncing Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Castarilia is ranked 150,802nd in the world and 258th in Thaecia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
