Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.065 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Risaak. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,374 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,842 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Imperial Credit battlesuits, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. 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 1,650th in the world and 77th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 508.41 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
