The People's Empire of Calamastan is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Allan Michaelè with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 796 million Calamastanis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vanaja. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Calamastani economy, worth 27.4 trillion GCE rubles 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 34,431 GCE rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and Allan Michaelè has just been declared ruler of Calamastan in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calamastan's national animal is the Serval, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Calamastan is ranked 62,446th in the world and 2nd in Glorious Communist Empire for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.16 Whatever.
