The Matriarchy of Karran is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 27.976 billion Karrans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Karranian economy, worth 869 trillion ar-karrans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,082 ar-karrans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, all news sources are under strict government control, graffiti graces every city's streets, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Karran's national animal is the sea witch, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Karran is ranked 231,042nd in the world and 10,082nd in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.55 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
