The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.251 billion Kalts enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 914 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 215,144 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. 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 202,767th in the world and 960th in 10000 Islands for Most Conservative, scoring 24.5 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
