Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Calicovi is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jurich Von Licenstein IV with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.977 billion Calicovians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, 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 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calicovian economy, worth 592 trillion British Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,992 British Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Disgruntled jocks are forced to play tetris for entertainment, kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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.

Calicovi is ranked 9,431st in the world and 308th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 261.81 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
