The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 15.152 billion Karazanites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Risaak. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,059 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,921 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and Karazanian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karazan's national animal is the Miniature Tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Imperatus.

Karazan is ranked 166,692nd in the world and 9,078th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 35.96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
