The Free Land of Ceasthasi is a large, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 69 million Ceasthasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ceasthasian economy, worth 2.34 trillion Ns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,941 Ns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ceasthasi's national animal is the Octopus.

Ceasthasi is ranked 198,759th in the world and 263rd in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.06 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
