The Court of The Crimson King of Kerlodia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaz with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.705 billion Kerlodis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Deep Underground. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlodi economy, worth 479 trillion Headpats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,505 Headpats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Kerlodi grocery store, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kerlodia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Acceptance.

Kerlodia is ranked 6,971st in the world and 196th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 100.7 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
