The People's Republic of KaldDalen is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 390 million KaldDalenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iskapp. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving KaldDalenian economy, worth 32.8 trillion kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,107 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the government funds large training centres to turn Skjegrons into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KaldDalen's national animal is the Skjegron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

KaldDalen is ranked 52,465th in the world and 408th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 26.14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
