The Protectorate of Calavaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Royal Governor Phoniex the First with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.708 billion Calavarians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calamari City. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calavarian economy, worth 358 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,745 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calavaria's national animal is the Flying Tein, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Calavaria is ranked 132,207th in the world and 134th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 33.03 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
