The Holy Methodist Empire of Kario and Nix is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord General Nelson Van Kario with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.101 billion Karnixions are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondar - Kemet. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karnixon economy, worth 545 trillion Kanixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,958 Kanixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Gondar - Kemet as a backdrop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kario and Nix's national animal is the Grim Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is United Imperial Methodist Church of Zen.

Kario and Nix is ranked 10,952nd in the world and 308th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 89.16 on the Human Development Index.
