Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, avant-garde cinema, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.481 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, 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 15,476 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 524,977 lats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,761,923 per year while the poor average 116,081, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Protestors are soaking piles of lats in blood to make a point about government incomes, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, and Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the King Carlian military unleashed its biological weapons. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 1,919th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
