The Dictatorship of Kaaresland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 358 million Kaareslandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 33.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaareslandian economy, worth 33.8 trillion Kaars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,474 Kaars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and Kaaresland has designated Kaaresland City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaaresland's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kaaresland is ranked 103,965th in the world and 2,960th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 71.31094047208 Days.
