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.

Description

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 began the pop star careers of the Squid Sisters. 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. It also appears in the Squid Sisters Stories, in which it is revealed that Marie's parents still live here, and that it take three and a half hours to reach it from Inkopolis by train. In Splatoon 2, Sunken Scroll 1 states that Pearl participated in a singing contest here, implying that its singing contests launched many idols into fame, not just Callie and Marie.
