The Socialist Union of Kerla is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Jacob Randall with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.3 billion Kerlans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abbott. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlan economy, worth a remarkable 5,881 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 major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 200,731 Thennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, Jacob Randall is considering changing the Kerlan flag to one with more glitter, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. 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 226,826th in the world and 6th in Anticapitalist Alliance for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -53.41 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
