The Union of Kalaspia-Shimarata is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stelios Cityrailsaints with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.671 billion Kalashi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ipsola-Tserba. The average income tax rate is 16.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalashi economy, worth a remarkable 2,370 trillion Kalaspis 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 amazing 245,103 Kalaspis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, on-duty Air Kalaspia-Shimarata flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and atheists on vacation find Orthodox Christianity's scriptures make useful doorstops. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kalaspia-Shimarata's national animal is the Yuhshen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Kalaspia-Shimarata is ranked 19,454th in the world and 1,096th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,243.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
