The Reino de León of Kareia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.456 billion Kareians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of León. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kareian economy, worth a remarkable 1,746 trillion Euros 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 an amazing 206,505 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, colonial subjects have Kareian culture shoved down their throats, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kareia's national animal is the Iberian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kareia is ranked 166,951st in the world and 48th in Union Mundial for Most Pacifist, with 3.17 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
