The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.668 billion Karlandonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlandonia City. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,891 trillion Krawas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 177,277 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlando's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Swanism.

Karlando is ranked 236,685th in the world and 1,111th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
