The Big Gay Union of Kalaascovy is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Council of Syndics with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.886 billion Kalaascovi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuuscow. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaascovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,481 trillion Labor Vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 187,854 Labor Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, and nobody is quite sure what the government's last policy decision was but fans are saying it'll make Kalaascovy great again. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaascovy's national animal is the Antarctic Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalaascovy is ranked 132,701st in the world and 12th in Balugata for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 980.39 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
