Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.118 billion Karlandonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlandonia City. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth 380 trillion Krawas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,927 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, anti-government web sites are springing up, billions of Krawas are being poured into a space program, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlando's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Swanism.

Karlando is ranked 102,519th in the world and 716th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
