The United States of Calicate is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.807 billion Calicateans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallington. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Calicatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,858 trillion cal dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 210,990 cal dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, all the playground's a stage for Calicatean schoolchildren, adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calicate's national animal is the Eagle.

Calicate is ranked 14,908th in the world and 813th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.07 bananas ingested per day.
