The Theocracy of Calieda is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mimam Al-Gagbad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, disturbing lack of elderly people, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.065 billion Caliedans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arelamibad. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The all-consuming Caliedan economy, worth a remarkable 2,625 trillion Hungs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 432,959 Hungs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and children often kick Spiders for amusement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calieda's national animal is the Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Arelam.

Calieda is ranked 245,492nd in the world and 8,709th in The East Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -40.87 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
