The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.959 billion Karlandonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, outspoken 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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,001 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,846 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Karlando. 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.
