The Queen's State of Casa Tomba is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.17 billion Casa Tombans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The very strong Casa Tomban economy, worth 663 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 38,657 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 262,826 per year while the poor average 2,077, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and Casa Tomba has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a major problem. Casa Tomba's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Casa Tomba is ranked 99,931st in the world and 5th in Accra for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 744.85 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
