The Holy Empire of Karolosia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Karolos with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 19.812 billion Karolosians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karolosia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Karolosian economy, worth a remarkable 5,475 trillion Staters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,397 Staters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, every workday begins with group therapy, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karolosia's national animal is the Lykos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kyrionism.

Karolosia is ranked 6,298th in the world and 309th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,340.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
