The Z Day Survivor of Karmagedon is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Awto Krat with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.666 billion Karmagedonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happy Land City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Karmagedonian economy, worth 650 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 244,100 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,634 per year while the poor average 57,213, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and dictionary sales have hit an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Karmagedon's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karmagedon is ranked 116,123rd in the world and 5,123rd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 43.59 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
