The Syndicalist Union of Kalaascovy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jack Calhoun with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, feral children, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.45 billion Kalaascovi love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taqorsburg. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kalaascovian economy, worth 553 trillion Dragon Coppers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 124,313 Dragon Coppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and society has literally been thrown to the wolves. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaascovy's national animal is the Antarctic Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kalaascovy is ranked 13,863rd in the world and 5th in Balugata for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,932.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
