The Rogue Nation of Kalmarth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.144 billion Kalmarthians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhalla. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalmarthian economy, worth a remarkable 4,813 trillion Dongs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 251,416 Dongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone apparently sends Leader hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Kalmarth, and frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kalmarth's national animal is the Puma, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalmarth is ranked 36,170th in the world and 15th in Eladen for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,597.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
