The Retropunk Eperopolis of Castelia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Adalbert Corvinius with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 6.409 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,915 trillion Mordon®s a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 298,922 Mordon®s, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,204,693 per year while the poor average 49,572, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

A signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and the military is plagued with unethical researchers. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the Robo-Animal Line of Products®, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The High Church of Castelia.

Castelia is ranked 204,328th in the world and 70th in Azure Watester Federation for Least Corrupt Governments, with 27.67 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
