The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.544 billion Karlandonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, liberal 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 97.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 2,044 trillion Krawas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 177,098 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Karlandonia City Times is sold out. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Swanism.
