The People's Republic of Karlinagrad is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 606 million Karlinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Karlina. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Karlinian economy, worth 59.6 trillion Kopekas 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 98,372 Kopekas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlinagrad's national animal is the Karlinian Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karlinagrad is ranked 76,822nd in the world and 4,460th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
