The Socialist Union of Kerla is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jacob Randall with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.205 billion Kerlans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abbott. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlan economy, worth a remarkable 4,736 trillion Thennats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 174,107 Thennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime is totally unknown. Kerla's national animal is the Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Kerla.

Kerla is ranked 19,180th in the world and 2nd in Anticapitalist Alliance for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 77.81 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
