The Borderlands of Calingfara is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 527 million Calingfaranians 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 Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 28.2%.

The all-consuming Calingfaranin economy, worth 52.6 trillion Calins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,780 Calins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Calingfara's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calingfara is ranked 104,773rd in the world and 2,954th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 28.22 Effective Tax Rate.
