Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Union of Kalaspia-Shimarata is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stelios Cityrailsaints with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.468 billion Kalashi have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ipsola-Tserba. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalashi economy, worth a remarkable 1,630 trillion Kalaspis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 218,332 Kalaspis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, the last thing Kalashi soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate, and armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Kalaspia-Shimarata's national animal is the Yuhshen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Kalaspia-Shimarata is ranked 149,543rd in the world and 30th in Regionless for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.38 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
