The Empire of Kalldunn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Arran IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.417 billion Kalldunnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lochinver. The average income tax rate is 44.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Kalldunnian economy, worth 180 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 127,627 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalldunn's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kalldunn is ranked 231,353rd in the world and 977th in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 44.21 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
