The People's Republic of Calicovi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jurich Von Licenstein IV with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.459 billion Calicovians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calconiea. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Calicovian economy, worth 507 trillion British Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,721 British Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, jobs opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry, and thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calicovi's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.
