The Federal Republic of Calachia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Nista with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.514 billion Calachians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpados. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calachian economy, worth 285 trillion Calis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 113,685 Calis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, t-shirts displaying a photo of Chancellor Nista performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown. Calachia's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calachia is ranked 68,345th in the world and 692nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,294.52 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
