The Military dictatorship of Qaratoprok is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 633 million Qaraqs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hoxıvan. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Qaraq economy, worth 73.8 trillion Manats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,650 Manats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Qaratoprok is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qaratoprok's national animal is the Kongrul, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Qaratoprok is ranked 237,559th in the world and 498th in The League for Fattest Citizens, with 8.88 Obesity Rate.
