AnimalColumba livia

The Republic of Kastonvia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Halyna Polishchuk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.51 billion Kastonvians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lívy. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kastonvian economy, worth 458 trillion Kastoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 130,526 Kastoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. 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 Columba livia, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Kastonvia is ranked 15,600th in the world and 825th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,182.6 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
