The Republic of Kaleidescooptopia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Calliope Kerensky with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.592 billion Scooptopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scoop City. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Scooptopian economy, worth 310 trillion Scoops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,642 Scoops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Calliope Kerensky sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, many friends and relatives of Calliope Kerensky have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaleidescooptopia's national animal is the Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kaleidescooptopia is ranked 269,521st in the world and 12,400th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 0.48 flags saluted per person per day.
