The Eternal Ranger of Karputsk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by William Attlee with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.736 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prutin. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The all-consuming Karputskian economy, worth a remarkable 3,165 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,980 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Pounds of property damage, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. 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 231,218th in the world and 55th in Founderless for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.29 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
