The Protectorate of Calavaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Royal Governor Phoniex the First with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.991 billion Calavarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calamari City. The average income tax rate is 48.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Calavarian economy, worth 724 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 103,665 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Calavaria's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calavaria's national animal is the Flying Tein, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Calavaria is ranked 196,517th in the world and 8th in Of Books and Stories for Most Secular, with 14.23 Atheism Rate.
