The Theocracy of Calieda is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mimam Al-Gagbad with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.129 billion Caliedans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, 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 98.7%.

The all-consuming Caliedan economy, worth a remarkable 4,804 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 a breathtaking 526,247 Hungs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins. 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 311,024th in the world and 10,221st in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27.2 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
