The Free Land of Calrad is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 455 million Calradians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravend. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Calradian economy, worth 43.9 trillion Ducats 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,554 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calrad has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Calrad's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calrad is ranked 118,869th in the world and 1,181st in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 323.41 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
