Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.966 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.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Industry, Healthcare, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 14,615 trillion lat a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 585,406 lat, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,717,705 per year while the poor average 157,273, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 1st in Hattrick and 4,833rd in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
