The United States of Calicate is a massive, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.846 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. The average income tax rate is 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Calicatean economy, worth 663 trillion cal dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 172,442 cal dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, it's scientifically provable that Calicatean guys don't know how to make a woman happy, and punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Calicate's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Calicate is ranked 19,144th in the world and 1,112th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 51.67 Atheism Rate.
