The United Kingdom of Kalmarnavia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 372 million Kalmarnavians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roskilde. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kalmarnavian economy, worth 11.4 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,557 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters, and the might of the nation's air force has been deployed against people with sticks in boats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalmarnavia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalmarnavia is ranked 199,885th in the world and 36th in The Moonlight Battle Born for Nudest, with 35.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
