The People's Confederacy of The Cazistan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 840 million Cazics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caz City. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cazistanian economy, worth 61.5 trillion bucks 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 73,214 bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cazistan's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cazistan is ranked 217,557th in the world and 125th in Confederacy of Allied States for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -170.61 on the Hayek Index.
