Sunken Scroll 17, describing Callie and Marie's childhoods in Calamari County.

Calamari County (Calamari Region in the European version of Splatoon), or simply Calamari, is a location outside of Inkopolis.


Calamari County is the hometown of Callie and Marie, the Squid Sisters, and their grandfather, Cap'n Cuttlefish. It hosts the annual Youth Folk-Singing Contests, the first of which launched the singing duo into the spotlight. Although Calamari is never directly seen in Splatoon, it is referenced multiple times, most notably in Sunken Scroll 17 and an Inkopolis News segment regarding Port Mackerel. Pearl was raised and participated in a singing contest here, implying that its singing contests launched many idols into fame, not just Callie and Marie.


Callie: I love the salty sea air that wafts through here!
Marie: It takes me back to our childhood in Calamari!
These two cousins from Calamari County won Inkopolis's first annual Youth Folk-Singing Contest. Their remarkable voices earned them a standing ovation from all present and catapulted them into the spotlight!
