The Techno-Social Utopian Realms of Kalunaria is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 538 million Kalunarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reynir City. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kalunarian economy, worth 42.1 trillion Aural Yen 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 78,322 Aural Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalunaria's national animal is the Kalunarian Eagle-Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalunaria is ranked 156,571st in the world and 4,393rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 42.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
