The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.358 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.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 33 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
