The Gay Space Communist Union of Castrovca is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Katya with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.881 billion Castrovcans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cavana. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Castrovcan economy, worth 757 trillion Castrovcan Roubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,273 Castrovcan Roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and Castrovcan Gladiators is a ratings success. Crime is totally unknown. Castrovca's national animal is the Serval, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Castrovca is ranked 1,494th in the world and 1st in CTSN for Healthiest Citizens, with 27.8 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
