The Oppressed Peoples of Karaface is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.901 billion Karafaceans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Funland. The average income tax rate is 38%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and students in Karaface's schools rarely attend their classes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Karaface's national animal is the Lorax, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Lulz.

Karaface is ranked 1,771st in Balder and 67,782nd in the world for Most Average, scoring 805 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
