The Dominion of Kalla is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Founder with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.433 billion Kallans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tar Valon. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kallan economy, worth 191 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,354 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, citizens' names are redacted on their IDs for national security, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kalla's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kalla is ranked 7,847th in the world and 203rd in the West Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 30,667.94 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
