The Socialist Republic of Karevka is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Secretary Artyom Komissarov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.103 billion Karevkans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korodvinsk. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Karevkan economy, worth 681 trillion Karevkan Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,717 Karevkan Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many in Karevka are born in the purple, the only film released this month was "Atheistvengers: Scientific Literacy War", returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, and professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karevka's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karevka is ranked 211,614th in the world and 5,561st in Lazarus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.78 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
