The Extrasolar Federation of Karaig is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman Holland Richter with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.399 billion Karaigans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highguard. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karaigan economy, worth a remarkable 3,101 trillion Krigs a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,877 Krigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Karaigans any less frightened, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and the government pours millions of Krigs into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karaig's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Altariaology.

Karaig is ranked 153,472nd in the world and 1st in Altarian Galaxy for Most Devout, with 4.95 Prayers Per Hour.
