The Republic of Cstoph is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Theseus Quartermain with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.228 billion Cstophians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calatia. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cstophian economy, worth 671 trillion cstophian shekels 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 impressive 107,820 cstophian shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Walls don't have ears, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cstoph's national animal is the Chimera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cstoph is ranked 94,989th in the world and 18th in Third Imperial Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 128,577 Standard Monetary Units.
