The Kingdom of Castlewood is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sir Andrew I with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.4 billion Castlewoodians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
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 65.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Castlewoodian economy, worth 296 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,723 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, and the Castlewoodian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". 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.
