The United Socialist States of Kalgin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by First Comrade Orlov with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 1.151 billion Kalginites 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turalgrad. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kalginian economy, worth 92.0 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 79,889 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Kalgin, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, and a major religion has been named as Kalgin's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalgin's national animal is the Northern Mountain Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kalgin is ranked 118,588th in the world and 4,525th in the Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 42 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
