The Queen's State of Kasba Cross is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.158 billion Kasba Crossians 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 tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The powerhouse Kasba Crossian economy, worth 828 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 45,616 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 442,282 per year while the poor average 226, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kasba Cross's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kasba Cross is ranked 21,095th in the world and 3rd in Bonn for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
