The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.441 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.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 3,583rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 120 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
