The Communal Union of Karnozia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Warner II with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 954 million Karnozians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsda. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karnozist economy, worth 93.9 trillion francs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,400 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karnozia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karnozia is ranked 174,138th in the world and 218th in Thaecia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
