Caladda, officially the Republic of Caladda is a sovereign city-state on the banks of the Danube. It falls on the 45° parallel and shares the border with Romania, but it is also in very close proximity to the Republic of Moldova. The country's territory is split in half by the Danube, the north part being known as the "Old Town" ("Orasul vechi"), while the south half being commonly referred to as the "New Town" ("Orasul nou"). Caladda is home to about 3 million people, 78% of whom are Caladdan citizens. There are three official languages of Caladda: Genovese, Romanian and English; with Romanian being the lingua franca. This reflects in its rich cultural diversity and extensive ethnic cuisine and major festivals. Multiracialism is enshrined in the constitution, and continues to shape national policies in education, housing, and politics.
