The Democratic Free Republic of Karlando is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karl McSwansson with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.234 billion Karlandonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlandonia City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlandonan economy, worth a remarkable 1,585 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 171,650 Krawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Swans into functioning members of society, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and Karlandonan husbands are dead good at fathering kids. 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 131,280th in the world and 1,425th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 522.58 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
