LeaderKing Karlinius


The Supreme Empire of Karlenstein is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Karlinius with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.41 billion Karlensteinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlington. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karlensteinian economy, worth 210 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,018 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All beauty contests have been banned, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Karlensteinian throne, and billions of Bitcoins are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlenstein's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Erutheism.

Karlenstein is ranked 34,211th in the world and 1,542nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,615.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
