The Lord High Admiral of Rupudska is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Frederick VI with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.018 billion Karlslanders enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sudentor. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karlslandic economy, worth a remarkable 6,871 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 343,266 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, and polite commuters on the Sudentor Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. Crime is totally unknown. Rupudska's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is well known.

Rupudska is ranked 161,004th in the world and 9th in SW Europe for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.62 Kickbacks Per Hour.
