Kalifer and Baska

Population9.688 billion

LeaderNiklas Kon▀tansson

AnimalBlack Eagle

The Federal Republic of Kalifer and Baska is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Niklas Kon▀tansson with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.688 billion Kalifaris hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordfjellrikkaldbyen. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kalifer and Baskan economy, worth a remarkable 2,040 trillion Nords a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 210,648 Nords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, the official Kalifer And Baskan Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime is totally unknown. Kalifer and Baska's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalifer and Baska is ranked 213,206th in the world and 1,129th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
