The Blessed Kingdom of Custadia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Strenst XXIX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.029 billion Custadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krudzt. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The Custadian economy, worth a remarkable 3,840 trillion Teils a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 225,507 Teils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, and a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all. 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 264,201st in the world and 7,099th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.58 crimes per hour.
