The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Comptroller-General with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.167 billion Kalts 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 70.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 405 trillion Kaltmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 187,084 Kaltmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes. Crime is totally unknown. Kaltovar's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Seperation of Church and State.

Kaltovar is ranked 26,712th in the world and 443rd in 10000 Islands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.8 Years.
