The Federal Republic of Calachia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Meyer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.319 billion Calachians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpados. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calachian economy, worth 396 trillion Calis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 91,814 Calis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Calachian weed picker are way up, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime is totally unknown. Calachia's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calachia is ranked 200,175th in the world and 812th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
