The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.366 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 2,424 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 181,411 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, they say that Karlandonians made a dessert and called it peace, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. 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.

Karlando is ranked 65,571st in the world and 393rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 204,776 Standard Monetary Units.
