Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.965 billion King Carlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. 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 15,574 trillion latss 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, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 537,688 latss, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,854,194 per year while the poor average 114,136, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in King Carl. 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 155,317th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Income Equality, scoring 6.16 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
