The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.629 billion Karazanites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,450 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 207,504 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 126,798th in the world and 6,774th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 22,410.47 Standard Monetary Units.
