The United Federation of Kalatona is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kenneth Trenton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.223 billion Kalatonans 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltine. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalatonan economy, worth 755 trillion kalas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,832 kalas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and Caltine's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kalatona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalatona is ranked 13,374th in the world and 487th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 80.41 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
