The Socialist Union of Kerla is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jacob Randall with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.992 billion Kerlans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abbott. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlan economy, worth a remarkable 5,766 trillion Thennats 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 198,901 Thennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is totally unknown. Kerla's national animal is the Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Kerla.

Kerla is ranked 14th in the world and 1st in Anticapitalist Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 30,115.59 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
