The Free Land of Calrad is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Compagne Nadia Verte with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.13 billion Calradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravend. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calradian economy, worth 302 trillion Ducats 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 142,044 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers compete for the highest commissions from fines, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown. Calrad's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Calrad is ranked 26,355th in the world and 396th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
