Karmic Diplomacy

Population461 million


The Constitutional Monarchy of Karmic Diplomacy is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its burgeoning Owl population. The devout population of 461 million diplomats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped diplomating economy, worth 12.2 trillion zalids a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,451 zalids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, meat-eating is frowned upon, organ donation is compulsory, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karmic Diplomacy's national animal is the Owl, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Karmic Diplomacy is ranked 84,114th in the world and 13th in Icor for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,215.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
