The Anarchist Communes of Kassimo is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.525 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 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kassimir economy, worth a remarkable 1,312 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,808 Gifts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', bike rage is all the rage, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. 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 227,738th in the world and 93rd in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -6.32 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
