The Republic of Karakalpaqstan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Muratbek Arzymbetuly with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.039 billion Karakalpaqs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nokis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.0%.

The all-consuming Karakalpaq economy, worth 109 trillion Soms a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,211 Soms, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, Islam has been named as Karakalpaqstan's national religion, and roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karakalpaqstan's national animal is the Buffalo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Karakalpaqstan is ranked 179,135th in the world and 175th in Council of Asia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -3 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
