The Republic of Calbee is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.231 billion Calbeeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ΛTHΞOS. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Calbeean economy, worth 106 trillion Keks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,378 Keks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calbee's national animal is the Nyn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Calbee is ranked 146,158th in the world and 5,827th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
