The Lone Ranger of Karputsk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by William Attlee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.162 billion Karputskians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prutin. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The very strong Karputskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,071 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 97,903 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karputsk's national animal is the Philip, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karputsk is ranked 166,442nd in the world and 5,330th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.2 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
