The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.936 billion King Carlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic 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.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, and the roads are virtually falling apart. 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 54th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 29 on the Hayek Index.
