Kartibia

The Republic of Kartibia is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 1.14 billion Kartibians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kartibian economy, worth 46.7 trillion shillings a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,960 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kartibia's national animal is the lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kartibia is ranked 246,766th in the world and 28th in Western Atlantic for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.37 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
