The Kingdom of Castlewood is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Andrew I with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.046 billion Castlewoodians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castlewood City. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Castlewoodian economy, worth 249 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 122,132 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
The nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark. Crime 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.
