The Theocracy of Caladraxia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dear Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.252 billion Caladraxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caladrax DC. The average income tax rate is 77.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Caladraxian economy, worth a remarkable 7,774 trillion Sigils 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 425,953 Sigils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Caladraxia as a reminder of their "special relationship", Caladraxians are wondering where have all the flowers gone, and everyone apparently sends Dear Leader hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Caladraxia's national animal is the Ice Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Personality Cult.

Caladraxia is ranked 70,454th in the world and 2,110th in Osiris for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,533.29 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
