The Nationalist Hivemind of Calva is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dimitrios Nikolopoulos with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 16.239 billion Calvans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agios Górtyna. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Calvan economy, worth a remarkable 3,309 trillion Goas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,821 Goas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calva's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Greek Orthodox.

Calva is ranked 244,413th in the world and 418th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 8.39 Whatever.
