The People's Republic of Karlinagrad is a huge, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 588 million Karlinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Karlina. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Karlinian economy, worth 57.9 trillion Kopekas 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 98,437 Kopekas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, towns are often run by puppets, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlinagrad's national animal is the Karlinian Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karlinagrad is ranked 7,538th in the world and 335th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 90.9 Effective Tax Rate.
