The Imperium of Kardjali is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empress Cirilla with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.869 billion Kardjalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enoch. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kardjalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,413 trillion Sharisites a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 244,574 Sharisites, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kardjali's national animal is the Blood Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Temple of Lalalej.

Kardjali is ranked 233,007th in the world and 1,354th in Europe for Most Armed, with 0.08 Weapons Per Person.
