The Federal Republic of Karelianastan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Simon Archidamus with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.116 billion Karelianastanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingsburg. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karelianastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,091 trillion Karelianastanian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,788 Karelianastanian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karelianastan's national animal is the Grey Heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Karelianastan is ranked 11,423rd in the world and 244th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Poor Incomes, with 104,889.41 Standard Monetary Units.
