The Republic of Karbalia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Franz Engesten with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 983 million Karbalians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kerguen. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Karbalian economy, worth 32.5 trillion Karbalian Armongs a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,081 Karbalian Armongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, a government program is underway to revitalize Karbalia's beaches, and Franz Engesten has just been declared ruler of Karbalia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karbalia's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
