The USF Socialist Republic of Karaden is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Commissariat with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.685 billion Karadenians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crowhaven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Karadenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,376 trillion Karadenian Rubal Cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 287,756 Karadenian Rubal Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karaden's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnostic Platonic Unitarian Universalism.

Karaden is ranked 207,601st in the world and 508th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -46.63 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
