The Gay Space Communist Union of Castrovca is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Katya with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.317 billion Castrovcans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cavana. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Castrovcan economy, worth a remarkable 1,662 trillion Castrovcan Roubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,942 Castrovcan Roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime is totally unknown. Castrovca's national animal is the Serval, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Castrovca is ranked 202,542nd in the world and 70th in USSD for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
