|Capital||Isle of Oriab|
|Leader||President Nayland Akeley|
The Republic of Karkosa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Nayland Akeley with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.389 billion Karkosans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Public Transport, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isle of Oriab. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.
The thriving Karkosan economy, worth 240 trillion Lengs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 71,085 Lengs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 286,913 per year while the poor average 11,759, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.
Listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, Karkosa has designated Isle of Oriab as its capital city, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and President Nayland Akeley has just been declared ruler of Karkosa in an international press conference. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Karkosa's national animal is the Dark Young, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
