The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-working population of 4.021 billion Kalts enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth 852 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 211,941 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Kaltic bee, and suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe. 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 3,601st in the world and 72nd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 95.7 on the Human Development Index.
