The Boson of Caleann is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.213 billion Caleannians 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 Industry, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caleannian economy, worth 681 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,445 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's a politician called Male Infant Turner, the Caleannian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caleann's national animal is the Elf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Caleann is ranked 100,221st in the world and 24th in Taijitu for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 32.89 on the Hayek Index.
