The Syndicalist Union of Kalaascovy is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Council of Syndics with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.521 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaascovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 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 185,178 Kobans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, and hospitals in Kalaascovy are too busy serving the needs of Balugata to see Kalaascovi. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaascovy's national animal is the Antarctic Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalaascovy is ranked 38,811th in the world and 3rd in Balugata for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,355.11 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
