The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.301 billion Kalts 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 medium-sized 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 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth a remarkable 1,478 trillion Kaltmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 234,573 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intoxicated AI mobile platforms are sometimes seen crashing through windows instead of being crashed by them, the government is avowedly secular, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime is totally unknown. Kaltovar's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Seperation of Church and State.

Kaltovar is ranked 2,939th in the world and 64th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 157.87 quips per hour.
