The Democratic Republic of Kalovinter is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 166 million Kalovinterians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 6.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kalovinterian economy, worth 11.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,228 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime is relatively low. Kalovinter's national animal is the Brussels Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalovinter is ranked 76,751st in the world and 4,921st in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
