LeaderChancellor Westra


The Federal Republic of Calachia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Westra with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.051 billion Calachians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpados. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Calachian economy, worth 684 trillion Calis 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 97,127 Calis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Chancellor Westra Pics" has made Chancellor Westra's mom a celebrity, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. Calachia's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Calachia is ranked 20,563rd in the world and 320th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 77,583.51 Standard Monetary Units.
