The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, aversion to nipples, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.246 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. 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 19,072 trillion lats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 573,666 lats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and King Carlian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. 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 2,375th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 18,823.05 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
