The United States of Calicate is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.597 billion Calicateans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Calicatean economy, worth 999 trillion cal dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 178,560 cal dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's new android secretary is the latest media darling, preservative-laden Calicatean cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime is totally unknown. Calicate's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Calicate is ranked 6,011th in the world and 301st in Lazarus for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 35,172.98 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
