Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Calicovi is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jurich Von Licenstein IV with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.639 billion Calicovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calconiea. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calicovian economy, worth 364 trillion Calico Pounds 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 large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 100,189 Calico Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Calicovian Liberator", dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Calicovi's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Naram-Sin of Akkad.

Calicovi is ranked 51st in Winterfell and 23,402nd in the world for Safest, scoring 359.769 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
