The Z Day Survivor of Karmagedon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Awto Krat with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.912 billion Karmagedonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, 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 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Karmagedonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 244,721 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 765,041 per year while the poor average 60,064, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and the military has gone fission for more funding. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Karmagedon's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karmagedon is ranked 10,088th in the world and 239th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 9,269.61 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
