Kalifer and Baska

Population7.87 billion

LeaderNiklas Konßtansson

AnimalBlack Eagle

The Federal Republic of Kalifer and Baska is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Niklas Konßtansson with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.87 billion Kalifaris love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordfjellrikkaldbyen. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kalifer and Baskan economy, worth a remarkable 1,624 trillion Nords a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,419 Nords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Kalifer and Baskan politicians, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime is totally unknown. Kalifer and Baska's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalifer and Baska is ranked 5,797th in the world and 98th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 206,419.1 Standard Monetary Units.
