The Empire of The Castelian Federation is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Septimius Augustus with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.142 billion Castelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castel. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth 157 trillion Castelian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,740 Castelian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of The Castelian Federation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Castelian Federation's national animal is the Federal Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

The Castelian Federation is ranked 100,815th in the world and 25th in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,351.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
