The Empire of Karstia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 572 million Karstians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Impercia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.4%.

The all-consuming Karstian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Kartonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,030 Kartonian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karstia's national animal is the Phoenix, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Karstia is ranked 120,090th in the world and 9th in Barbungia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 126.71 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
