|Leader||Grand Duke Christo|
The Grand Duchy of Cassaralla is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Duke Christo with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.954 billion Cassarallans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfheim. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Cassarallan economy, worth an astonishing 17,666 trillion Sovereigns 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, 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 an amazing 453,516 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Most towns have their Grand Duke Christo High School located on Grand Duke Christo Street, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, Cassaralla successfully hosted the Lemuria Olympics, and the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cassaralla's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Banjoism.
