The Holy Empire of Kargestan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 582 million Kargestanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kargestanian economy, worth 49.5 trillion maltesers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 85,109 maltesers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kargestan's national animal is the condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kargestan is ranked 151,364th in the world and 7,387th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -1.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
