The The United Terran Authority of Caldariat is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ryujin with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.307 billion Caldarians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Caldarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,281 trillion Atlases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 274,662 Atlases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caldariat's national animal is the Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kpop.

Caldariat is ranked 168,943rd in the world and 5,591st in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -889.5 on the Hayek Index.
