The Slavic Union of Karaq is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Secretary Anton Halmikov with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.35 billion Karaqis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaztian. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Karaqi economy, worth 837 trillion Kuzoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 100,308 Kuzoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karaq's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Karaq is ranked 36,079th in the world and 6th in Union of Sovereign Satellite Republics for Most Developed, scoring 63.14 on the Human Development Index.
