The Kingdom of Kalpi is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Himketu Vikramaditya with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 900 million Kalpians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indralok. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kalpian economy, worth 70.8 trillion Mudras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,705 Mudras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kalpi's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kalpi is ranked 22,208th in the world and 21st in India for Highest Poor Incomes, with 61,346.29 Standard Monetary Units.
