The People's Protectorate of Le Caldreaux is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Colonel Eva Mira Guadelupe with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.45 billion Le Caldrians 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 Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaxosa. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Le Caldrian economy, worth 456 trillion caldroes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,272 caldroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon", criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and rumor has it that Colonel Eva Mira Guadelupe has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown. Le Caldreaux's national animal is the bobcat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Le Caldreaux is ranked 7,787th in the world and 29th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,323.77 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
