The Confederative Republic of Calliana is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 669 million Callianans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varden. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Callianan economy, worth 75.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 113,255 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calliana's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Calliana is ranked 38,004th in the world and 288th in The Communist Bloc for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.52 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
