The Holiday Lords of Cinder of Kalaron is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archon with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The cynical, humorless population of 11.409 billion Kalaronians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yharnam. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaronian economy, worth a remarkable 2,046 trillion Sularons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 179,400 Sularons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Yharnam make great practice for foreign snipers, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and Kalaronians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalaron's national animal is the Diamond head Viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalaron is ranked 216,529th in the world and 8th in The Phoenix Concordat for Fattest Citizens, with 6.98 Obesity Rate.
