The Arling of Calabek is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arl Baizyl vos Folmar with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.027 billion Calabekians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bekker. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Calabekian economy, worth 336 trillion kamas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 66,847 kamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Calabek's national animal is the ghost bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vezkelios.

Calabek is ranked 52,632nd in the world and 18th in Albion for Most Stationary, with 580.30003138552 days.
