The Dominion of The Calabash Protectorate is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nkosi Zulu with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.031 billion Calabash Protectorateans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vryheid. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Calabash Protectoratean economy, worth 207 trillion Tiles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,320 Tiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in The Calabash Protectorate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Calabash Protectorate's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Calabash Protectorate is ranked 14,323rd in the world and 790th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,316.42 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
