The Union of Kalaspia-Shimarata is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ghalzfk inshoqna with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.886 billion Kalashi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Administration, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ipsola-Tserba. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kalashi economy, worth a remarkable 2,597 trillion Kalaspis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,564 Kalaspis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Large areas of Kalaspia-Shimarata are not accessible by the public, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), and there are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kalaspia-Shimarata's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Kalaspia-Shimarata is ranked 238,440th in the world and 30th in Regionless for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.62 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
