The Federation of Castille de Italia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President John Faring with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.23 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 Preslaff. The average income tax rate is 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Castillian economy, worth a remarkable 2,599 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 160,168 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 Preslaff's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and President John Faring'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.

Castille de Italia is ranked 56,032nd in the world and 25th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,888 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
