The Principality of Castwell is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Durham 1 with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.783 billion Castellians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castiel. The average income tax rate is 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Castwellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,065 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,247 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, jaywalkers are condemned to lives of poverty for their heinous crimes, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castwell's national animal is the White Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Castwell is ranked 160,199th in the world and 331st in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Extreme, scoring 4.66 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
