The Free Land of Kalaratri is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stjepan Filipović with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.332 billion Kalaratrianins are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Užupis. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaratrianian economy, worth 548 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 164,564 Kelantanese dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Kalaratrianian weed picker are way up, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Kalaratri, and vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work. 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.

Kalaratri is ranked 200,083rd in the world and 7,844th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.66 Crimes Per Hour.
