The Syndicalist Union of Kalaascovy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Council of Syndics with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.23 billion Kalaascovi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuuscow. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaascovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion Kobans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,724 Kobans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and hundreds of sailors ride the good ship The Council Of Syndics day after day. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaascovy's national animal is the Antarctic Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalaascovy is ranked 8,685th in the world and 1st in Balugata for Highest Average Incomes, with 180,724.42 Standard Monetary Units.
