The Democratic Republic of Calvanovia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory vegetarianism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 733 million Calvanovians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The strong Calvanovian economy, worth 47.1 trillion Florbs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 64,212 Florbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calvanovia's national animal is the Pocahontas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Calvanovia is ranked 112,833rd in the world and 6th in The Divided Unity of Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
