The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.061 billion Karlandonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded 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 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth 486 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 119,859 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 112,841st in the world and 757th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 71.09 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
