The Often reformed republic of Castarilia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jose Handia with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.845 billion Castarilians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Messolina. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Castarilian economy, worth 166 trillion Siolas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,456 Siolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Jose Handia, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Castarilia's national animal is the Pouncing Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None official.

Castarilia is ranked 206,670th in the world and 269th in Thaecia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
