The Constitutional Monarchy of The Grand Duchy Of Nova Capile is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Klaus I with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.729 billion Capileans 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saxtonburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Capilean economy, worth a remarkable 1,576 trillion Capilean Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 234,296 Capilean Reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 788,982 per year while the poor average 51,547, a ratio of 15.3 to 1.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Capilean humor gets, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and days begin with afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Grand Duchy Of Nova Capile's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

The Grand Duchy Of Nova Capile is ranked 134,599th in the world and 40th in Cobalt Network for Most Income Equality, scoring 6.53 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
