The Theocracy of Calieda is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its lack of airports, flagrant waste-dumping, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.456 billion Caliedans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 93.5%.

The strong Caliedan economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion Hungs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 290,382 Hungs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Calieda's national animal is the Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Calieda is ranked 732nd in the world and 17th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1,581.12 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
