The Queer Eco-Villages of Caldania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Insurrectionary Queer Liberation Cells with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.766 billion Caldanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Administration and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caldanian Eco Village. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Caldanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,600 trillion chaoses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,593 chaoses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Insurrectionary Queer Liberation Cells Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. Crime is totally unknown. Caldania's national animal is the Neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Caldania is ranked 489th in the world and 21st in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 10,348.85 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
