The United Federation of Kalatona is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kenneth Trenton with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.613 billion Kalatonans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltine. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalatonan economy, worth 831 trillion kalas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,304 kalas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and hackers post hourly updates on international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kalatona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalatona is ranked 146,206th in the world and 7,119th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -336.15 on the Hayek Index.
