The Holy Corporate Green Dynasty of Caltof is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Business with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.203 billion Caltofians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ancapistan. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Caltofian economy, worth a remarkable 1,446 trillion BitCoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 233,232 BitCoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,147,297 per year while the poor average 27,075, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, and a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Caltof's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Libertarianism.

Caltof is ranked 17,243rd in the world and 2nd in Hollow Point for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77.67 on the Rand Index.
