The Dynasty of House Caleb is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Caleb with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.018 billion Calebian familia are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agoge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The strong Calebian economy, worth 217 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 54,010 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The new hit series "House Caleb's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. House Caleb's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

House Caleb is ranked 54,044th in the world and 3rd in The Haven Of Calebia for Most Developed, scoring 56.8 on the Human Development Index.
