The Social Union of Castille de Italia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Henry J Adams with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.23 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 Antietam. The average income tax rate is 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Castillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,660 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 162,280 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 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 3,943rd in the world and 10th in Greater Dienstad for Most Devout, with 3,432.35 Prayers Per Hour.
