The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an iron fist, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.972 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 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,041 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 203,142 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Imperial Credit treacle machine, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. 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 3,477th in the world and 180th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 138.11 Quips Per Hour.
