The Democratic States of Caliland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nathaniel Emerson with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.613 billion Calilandians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wilsonville. The average income tax rate is 25.8%.

The powerhouse Calilandian economy, worth 117 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,677 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Caliland's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Caliland is ranked 44,161st in the world and 1,525th in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 45.22 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
