Karu Islands

Population11.992 billion

LeaderSartu Kekili Lipuli


The Chiefdom of Karu Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sartu Kekili Lipuli with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 11.992 billion Karu are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walaka. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Karu economy, worth 311 trillion cowries a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Trout Farming industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 25,949 cowries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, prison visits increase substantially during election years, gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Karu casinos, and guns are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karu Islands's national animal is the frigatebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Karu Islands is ranked 164,504th in the world and 314th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 14.25 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
