The Kingdom of Castlewood is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Andrew I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.951 billion Castlewoodians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castlewood City. The average income tax rate is 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Castlewoodian economy, worth 381 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 129,275 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, and double-parking is on the rise as automobile numbers increase. 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.

Castlewood is ranked 12,167th in the world and 609th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 105 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
