The Free Land of Kaltovar is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 431 million 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.0%.

The all-consuming Kaltic economy, worth 48.1 trillion Kaltmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 111,591 Kaltmarks, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaltovar's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kaltovar is ranked 40,213th in the world and 396th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,921.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
