The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.03 billion Karlandonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,940 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 175,935 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 217,620th in the world and 960th in 10000 Islands for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.43 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
