The Blessed Kingdom of Custadia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Strenst XXIX with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.66 billion Custadians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krudzt. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The strong Custadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,405 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 225,653 Teils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 941,551 per year while the poor average 35,301, a ratio of 26.7 to 1.

Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, it's best not to ask what goes into Krudzt Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Custadia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Custadia is ranked 148,920th in the world and 4,733rd in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -302.47 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
