The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.804 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, 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.

Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and online tourism reviews of King Carl are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar. 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 9,326th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 68 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
