Karasonia

The Republic of Karasonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 7.298 billion Kárasonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 8.5%.

The Kárasonian economy, worth 447 trillion Kárasonian vekts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 61,358 Kárasonian vekts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Karasonia's national animal is the raven.

Karasonia is ranked 247,723rd in the world and 6,002nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Conservative, scoring 18 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
