The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.872 billion Kalts enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 820 trillion Kaltmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 211,812 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, and The TEMPEST Council's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army. 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 243,222nd in the world and 1,029th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with -260 Meters Of Sunlight.
