The Big Gay Union of Kalaascovy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Council of Syndics with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.996 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, outspoken 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 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalaascovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 trillion Kobans 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 186,524 Kobans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks, international tensions are high as Kalaascovy threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. Crime is totally unknown. Kalaascovy's national animal is the Antarctic Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kalaascovy is ranked 14,461st in the world and 5th in Balugata for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.66 Years.
