The Kingdom of Karrack is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Khalid Abdul Ali with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.696 billion Karrackians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Administration and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ark Angel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The powerhouse Karrackian economy, worth 246 trillion Karrack Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 91,596 Karrack Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 332,808 per year while the poor average 17,943, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karrack's national animal is the Golden Vulture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Karrack is ranked 49,956th in the world and 79th in Texas for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.84 Workforce Participation Rate.
