The Union of Caltarania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Drystin Gwenadur with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.655 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 Cadwell. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caltari economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 trillion Caltari orduils 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 98,266 Caltari orduils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime is totally unknown. Caltarania's national animal is the kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Caltarania is ranked 43,905th in the world and 8th in Kylaris for Most Secular, with 28.83 Atheism Rate.
