The Transcontinental Kingdoms of Kalkvia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Xander II with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.487 billion Kalkvians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Jackson. The average income tax rate is 42.6%.

The powerhouse Kalkvian economy, worth 153 trillion Reys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,504 Reys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, Judaism has been named as Kalkvia's national religion, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalkvia's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Judaism.

Kalkvia is ranked 106,037th in the world and 29th in Novus Lucidum for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 22.77 on the Hayek Index.
