The Constitutional Monarchy of Caltharus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Governor Fredrik III Constantine with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.974 billion Caltharusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternum. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caltharusian economy, worth 574 trillion Caltharusian Kiribs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,510 Caltharusian Kiribs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", and vacationing Caltharusians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caltharus's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pantheon of the shattered god.

Caltharus is ranked 205,752nd in the world and 7,184th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.62 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
