The Popular Republic of Caltarania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lucan de Bordeaux with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.438 billion Caltari are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Sheaf. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caltari economy, worth a remarkable 1,317 trillion Caltari shillings 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 98,069 Caltari shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus, sex changes are routinely performed at Caltarania's hospitals, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime is totally unknown. Caltarania's national animal is the great squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Caltarania is ranked 15,905th in the world and 7th in Kylaris for Smartest Citizens, with 70 Quips Per Hour.
