The Oppressed Peoples of William Caswell is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.124 billion William Caswellians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The William Caswellian economy, worth 467 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,493 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 206,376 per year while the poor average 11,477, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. William Caswell's national animal is the Python, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

William Caswell is ranked 147,845th in the world and 44th in Ashen Fields for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 62.5 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
