The Free Land of Calrad is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Compagne Nadia Verte with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.085 billion Calradians 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravend. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calradian economy, worth 289 trillion Ducats 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 138,704 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Dragon Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime is totally unknown. Calrad's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Calrad is ranked 11,148th in the world and 231st in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 206 Meters Of Sunlight.
