The Free Land of Karwan is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 595 million Karwanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karwagrad. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Karwanian economy, worth 54.1 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,861 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, Karwanians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karwan's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karwan is ranked 25,796th in the world and 95th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 70.51 on the Human Development Index.
