The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Comptroller-General with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.256 billion Kalts are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 71.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 423 trillion Kaltmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 187,758 Kaltmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime is totally unknown. Kaltovar's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Seperation of Church and State.

Kaltovar is ranked 185,515th in the world and 1,876th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 83.53 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
