The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.328 billion 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 led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 24,823rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.097 Stalins.
