The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.606 billion Karazanites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Risaak. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,962 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,841 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, and the government has enacted freedom of information. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karazan's national animal is the Miniature Tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Imperatus.

Karazan is ranked 17,184th in the world and 743rd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 75.7 Effective Tax Rate.
