The United Federation of Kalatona is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kenneth Trenton with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.755 billion Kalatonans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltine. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kalatonan economy, worth 876 trillion kalas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,431 kalas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kalatona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kalatona is ranked 17,661st in the world and 446th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 808.23279523068 Days.
