The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.527 billion King Carlians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 16,663 trillion lats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is a breathtaking 545,872 lats, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,883,070 per year while the poor average 54,919, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 151,769th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 21.5 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
