The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.273 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.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and anti-tourism militias patrol the borders. 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 25th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 45 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
