The Republic of Kalosia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edgard Solem with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.014 billion Kalosians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monterra. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kalosian economy, worth 858 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,663 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Kalosian lands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalosia's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is no religion as Kalosia is secular.

Kalosia is ranked 144,366th in the world and 55th in Rushmore for Most Extreme, scoring 14.76 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
