The Holy Corporate Green Dynasty of Caltof is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mr Business with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.756 billion Caltofians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. 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 1,825 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 235,367 BitCoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,039,647 per year while the poor average 4,371, a ratio of 466 to 1.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. 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 207,828th in the world and 10th in Hollow Point for Least Corrupt Governments, with 5.09 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
