Kaltea

Population230 million

The Commonwealth of Kaltea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 230 million Kalteans 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.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kalteic economy, worth 7.68 trillion coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,408 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Environmental legislation occurs cyclically, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaltea's national animal is the sea urchin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kaltea is ranked 178,900th in the world and 214th in Refugia for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,752.83 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
