The United Imperial Republic of Castigonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Thatcher Mayes with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.817 billion Castigonians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eaglewood City. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Castigonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,549 trillion Kirabuckian castis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,904 Kirabuckian castis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, there are no more heroes any more, the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, and high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castigonia's national animal is the Castigonian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sibarianism.

Castigonia is ranked 236,009th in the world and 26th in The Respected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.99 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
