The United Federation of Kalatona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kenneth Trenton with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.043 billion Kalatonans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltine. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalatonan economy, worth 715 trillion kalas a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,915 kalas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Caltine, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalatona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalatona is ranked 2,781st in the world and 123rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 64.41 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
