Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Castlewood is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sir Andrew I with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.715 billion Castlewoodians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castlewood City. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Castlewoodian economy, worth 202 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 118,348 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castlewood's national animal is the Karl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Castlewood is ranked 77,017th in the world and 4,696th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 23.29 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
