The Kingdom of Calgasia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lancelot von Habsburg with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.484 billion Calgasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldstadt. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Calgasian economy, worth 315 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,883 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, and the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calgasia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Calgasia is ranked 32,017th in the world and 1,614th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,059.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
