The Militaristic Tsardom of Kardaze is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 763 million Kardazians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pytoringrad. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kardazean economy, worth 73.8 trillion kardazian rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,726 kardazian rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

To 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kardaze's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kardaze is ranked 79,825th in the world and 40th in CISB for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,102.21 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
