The Imperium of Kardjali is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Cirilla with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.909 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, socially-minded 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 2,976 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 249,956 Sharisites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dreams of entering the Super League have been relegated to the history books, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Enoch as a backdrop. 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 272,744th in the world and 1,273rd in Europe for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -34.01 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
