The Social Union of Castille de Italia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Henry J Adams with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.593 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 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Castillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,728 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 163,212 Dataries, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, conspiracy theorists allege Antietam's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and Premier Henry J Adams's family is riven by conflict as they fight over the succession. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 147,102nd in the world and 48th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -6.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
