The United Terran Authority of Caldariat is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ryujin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.726 billion Caldarians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kerenza. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Caldarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,168 trillion Atlases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 295,449 Atlases, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caldariat's national animal is the Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is s a d v i b e s.

Caldariat is ranked 61,490th in the world and 2,001st in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 24.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
