The Unitary Socialist Republic of Kassaran is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Councilman Tasgon with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.805 billion Kassaran are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adyn Val. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kassaran economy, worth an astonishing 12,913 trillion Standards 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. 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 a breathtaking 652,057 Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and Councilman Tasgon's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kassaran's national animal is the Kassaran Wolfhawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Orthodox Lumyan.

Kassaran is ranked 20,326th in the world and 25th in Greater Dienstad for Most Influential, scoring 2,257 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
