The Petty Kingdom of Kase is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anneliese Sommer with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.033 billion Kasens 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Annesburg. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kasen economy, worth 337 trillion Silvers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,282 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anneliese Sommer's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and the universal wage level is set by dividing GDP by the number of citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kase's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kase is ranked 237,966th in the world and 252nd in Forest for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.45 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
