The Generation Kill of Kastonvia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sgt Brad Iceman Colbert with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.081 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 953 trillion Freedom Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,719 Freedom Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Baghdad River, building a phallus out of Minecraft blocks counts as indecent exposure, the government believes there is no problem that raising taxes won't fix, and parents who fail mandatory parenting classes risk having their children taken away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kastonvia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Democracy.

Kastonvia is ranked 283,693rd in the world and 5,982nd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.77 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
