The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 3.111 billion Kalts enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 629 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 202,234 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. 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 8,229th in the world and 123rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12,519.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
