The Republic of Kalosia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edgard Solem with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.78 billion Kalosians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monterra. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kalosian economy, worth 722 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,078 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Kalosian lands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalosia's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is no religion as Kalosia is secular.

Kalosia is ranked 152,665th in the world and 57th in Rushmore for Most Secular, with 16.36 Atheism Rate.
