The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cynical, humorless population of 14.202 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 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,861 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,515 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, Karazan's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 164,338th in the world and 9,189th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -13.49 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
