The Federal Principality of Caasd is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Princess Oswin XXI with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.434 billion Caasdians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lidpointthwaite-with-Jumpminstersome. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Caasdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 trillion Caasdian Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,685 Caasdian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, third world countries are rich in "I Love Lidpointthwaite-with-Jumpminstersome" t-shirts, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caasd's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Caasd is ranked 88,521st in the world and 3,844th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 64.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
