The Kingdom of Kalpi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Himketu Vikramaditya with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed population of 2.114 billion 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 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kalpian economy, worth 189 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, Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, 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 89,745 Mudras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emojis are the soul of wit, Himketu Vikramaditya's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Himketu Vikramaditya, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime is totally unknown. Kalpi's national animal is the Peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalpi is ranked 3,023rd in the world and 7th in India for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,391.64 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
