The USF Socialist Republic of Karaden is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Commissariat with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.041 billion Karadenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crowhaven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Karadenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,857 trillion Karadenian Rubal Cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 285,045 Karadenian Rubal Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Karaden' is a smash hit, and schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karaden's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnostic Platonic Unitarian Universalism.

Karaden is ranked 4th in the world and 1st in USSD for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 34,024.73 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
