OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Federation of Callidia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Federal Chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.897 billion Callidians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 5%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Callidia's many privately-owned prisons, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown. Callidia's national animal is the Callidian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Sercen.

Callidia is ranked 871st in Osiris and 21,424th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 25 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
