The Federation of Castille de Italia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Harvey Hershey with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.347 billion Castillians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Castillian economy, worth a remarkable 3,936 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 168,621 Dataries, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Preslaff Film Festival recently voted 'Castillian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, President Harvey Hershey's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service. 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 268,162nd in the world and 107th in Greater Dienstad for Most Devout, with 3.92 prayers per hour.
