The Collosal Congregate of Southern and Northern Caledonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme overlord Sebastian I with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 4.716 billion CALEDONIANS enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of kiltborough. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Southern and Northern Caledonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,054 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 223,564 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, and all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave. Crime is totally unknown. Southern and Northern Caledonia's national animal is the Regal Sebtopian Fishback, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sebtism.

Southern and Northern Caledonia is ranked 171,800th in the world and 3rd in United Congregate of Nations for Safest, scoring 28.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
