The Holy Empire of Kario and Nix is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 652 million 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, 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 49.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Karnixon economy, worth 87.3 trillion Kanixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 133,857 Kanixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, vacationing Karnixions expect to be treated as royalty, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kario and Nix's national animal is the Grim Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kario and Nix is ranked 132,156th in the world and 5,135th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1.1 on the Hayek Index.
