The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.75 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, socially-minded, 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 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth 590 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 124,405 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and Swan is one of the most popular forenames 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Swanism.
