The Unified Kingdom of Kaschovia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Albus Karelka III with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.525 billion Kaschovians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaiseva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaschovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,495 trillion Kaschis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 261,955 Kaschis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,377,852 per year while the poor average 3,345, a ratio of 710 to 1.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kaschovia's national animal is the Kulevian Butterfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kaschovia is ranked 39,817th in the world and 722nd in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 9.53 billion capita.
