The Union of Kalaspia-Shimarata is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stelios Cityrailsaints with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.32 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 7.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalashi economy, worth a remarkable 2,154 trillion Kalaspis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,183 Kalaspis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Stelios Cityrailsaints claims no responsibility for what Stelios Cityrailsaints's government does, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Stelios Cityrailsaints's majority, commemoration of the Great Balder War costs almost as much as the war itself, and schoolchildren are taught to boo and hiss at Stelios Cityrailsaints's name. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 150,339th in the world and 5,556th in Balder for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1.68 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
