The Empire of Juventini is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 163 million Castillians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.4%.

The very strong Castllian economy, worth 13.4 trillion Dolars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,249 Dolars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,686 per year while the poor average 14,848, a ratio of 21.2 to 1.

13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and politicians look weirdly alike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Juventini's national animal is the Black Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Juventini is ranked 22,858th in the world and 58th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,795.71 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
