The Federal Republic of Calahy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Federal President Caroll Eigen with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.21 billion Calahians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darmschtadt. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calahyian economy, worth 375 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 169,996 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International tensions are high as Calahy threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calahy's national animal is the Double-headed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Calahy is ranked 23,502nd in the world and 580th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.36 Whatever.
