The Matriarchy of Kalimport is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Grand Precept with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.271 billion Kalimportians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalimport City. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalimportian economy, worth a remarkable 1,138 trillion Dewgongs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 181,612 Dewgongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Grand Precept and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Grand Precept, rumor has it that Grand Precept has won three lotteries in a row, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalimport's national animal is the Golden Opera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Logic and Reason.

Kalimport is ranked 143,762nd in the world and 518th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 9.99 flags saluted per person per day.
