LeaderKing Arnoulet Vaillancourt


The Grand Republic of Castenor is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Arnoulet Vaillancourt with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 9.054 billion Castenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Evailles. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The strong Castentian economy, worth 549 trillion castens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,678 castens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

King Arnoulet Vaillancourt has just been declared ruler of Castenor in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts. Crime is relatively low. Castenor's national animal is the rooster, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Atheism.

Castenor is ranked 99,273rd in the world and 94th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 17.29 Atheism Rate.
