The Constitutional Monarchy of Calponia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Allie Robins with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and deadly medical pandemics. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.606 billion Calponians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wellington. The average income tax rate is 48.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Calponian economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 161,759 Gold Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calponia's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Calponia is ranked 30,921st in the world and 119th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 66.34 on the Human Development Index.
