Karlovich

The Empire of Karlovich is a small, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 45 million Karlovichians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Karlovichian economy, worth 2.75 trillion Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 61,045 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlovich's national animal is the Smirnoff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Karlovich is ranked 146,239th in the world and 44th in United States of UBG for Highest Drug Use, scoring 26.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
