The Federal Republic of Karelianastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Simon Archidamus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.849 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingsburg. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karelianastanian economy, worth 697 trillion Karelianastanian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,781 Karelianastanian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Karelianastan is ranked 8,145th in the world and 165th in The Communist Bloc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.77 years.
