The United Socialist States of Callid is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Oscar Weirman with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.158 billion Callidians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callidium. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Callidian economy, worth 215 trillion Callidian Quams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 99,909 Callidian Quams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, people say chess victor Oscar Weirman can kill you with mind-bullets, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Callidians any less frightened, and young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Callid's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Callid is ranked 102,809th in the world and 154th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 119,570 Standard Monetary Units.
