The Kingdom of South Kalmaria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jules Bernard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.623 billion South Kalmarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouvelle Orléans. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Kalmarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,135 trillion South Kalmarian Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,677 South Kalmarian Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", Prime Minister Jules Bernard's campaign events reach their climax when the celebrity endorsers reveal themselves, money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime is totally unknown. South Kalmaria's national animal is the seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

South Kalmaria is ranked 228,042nd in the world and 11,726th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.56 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
