“oderint dum metuant” Stjepan Filipović

The Free Land of Kalaratri is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Stjepan Filipović with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.573 billion Kalaratrianins love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xenophon. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kalaratrianian economy, worth 196 trillion Kelantanese dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 125,001 Kelantanese dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Xenophon to enjoy their national art, and kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaratri's national animal is the Rattenkönig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eternalux.
