Callista Dispatches

Population7.626 billion

LeaderTsar Sorianoria


The Tsardom of Callista Dispatches is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tsar Sorianoria with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.626 billion Callistans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callistagrad. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Callistan economy, worth 628 trillion Rubles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,456 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The easiest method of escaping from prison is to take singing lessons, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', visions of giant pink Bears are a common side effect after Callistans eat their meals, and escalators are avoided at all costs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Callista Dispatches's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various.

Callista Dispatches is ranked 273,039th in the world and 74th in Callista for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 27.19 Whatever.
