The Cybernetic Federal Republic of Kaltovar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The TEMPEST Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.537 billion Kalts 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VDC. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaltic economy, worth a remarkable 1,543 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 236,107 Kaltmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character. Crime is totally unknown. Kaltovar's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Seperation of Church and State.

Kaltovar is ranked 32,387th in the world and 122nd in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 107 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
