The Efficient Corporation of Karatengisa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Schlumberge with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.346 billion Karatengisans 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oil City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Karatengisan economy, worth a remarkable 5,414 trillion petro $s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 295,156 petro $s, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, and Karatengisan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime is totally unknown. Karatengisa's national animal is the Loxochoncha eichwaldi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karatengisa is ranked 25,633rd in the world and 722nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.69 law-abiding acts per hour.
