The Blessed Kingdom of Custadia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Strenst XXIX with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.947 billion Custadians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krudzt. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The strong Custadian economy, worth a remarkable 3,171 trillion Teils a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 244,941 Teils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,429,894 per year while the poor average 19,741, a ratio of 72.4 to 1.

Minority children find the right answer in school tests is always the most insulting one, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Custadia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Custadia is ranked 8,945th in the world and 515th in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.43 Years.
