The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.316 billion King Carlians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

King Carl-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the lats.

King Carl is ranked 1st in Hattrick and 110,709th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -63 Dawkins.
