The People's Republic of Karmastar is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 479 million Karmastarians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Karmastarian economy, worth 43.8 trillion Gulags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,382 Gulags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, a Saint Osmund Tourist Association survey has rated Karmastar #1 for number twos, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Karmastar's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Karmastar is ranked 41,021st in the world and 5th in Saint Osmund for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 4,770.61 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
