The Halcyon Communes of Kassimo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.897 billion Kassians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kassimir economy, worth 855 trillion Gifts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 96,199 Gifts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending. Crime is totally unknown. Kassimo's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kassimo is ranked 43,281st in the world and 17th in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
