The Social Union of Castille de Italia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Henry J Adams with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.843 billion Castillians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antietam. The average income tax rate is 72.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Castillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 trillion Dataries a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 164,287 Dataries, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and conspiracy theorists allege Antietam's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castille de Italia's national animal is the Castillian Snow Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is secularism.

Castille de Italia is ranked 59,150th in the world and 28th in Greater Dienstad for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56.11 on the Rand Index.
