The Holy Empire of Karelignia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Imperiator Miska I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.728 billion Karelignians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vihriholma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Karelignian economy, worth 634 trillion karels a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 170,182 karels, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Karelignia is often a lifetime appointment, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karelignia's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Suomenusko.

Karelignia is ranked 5,208th in the world and 3rd in Merridel for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 10,844.77 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
