The Democratic People's Republic of Calvarado is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President Dragon with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 867 million Calvaradans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Calvaradan economy, worth 103 trillion dollars 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 Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 119,744 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, there's never enough space in space, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calvarado's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Calvarado is ranked 9,770th in the world and 1st in Socialist North America for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.08 Workforce Participation Rate.
