The Federation of Calmarya is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 260 million Calmaryans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The all-consuming Calmaryan economy, worth 25.7 trillion Calmaryan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,013 Calmaryan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, and prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Calmarya's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calmarya is ranked 49,601st in the world and 2,057th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
