The Fish Bowl of Red Klaus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 16.027 billion Red Klausians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Red Klausian economy, worth 594 trillion Golden Klaus Coins 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 37,088 Golden Klaus Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and Red Klaus successfully hosted the Hippy Haven Olympics. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Klaus's national animal is the Gold Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Red Klaus is ranked 241,880th in the world and 36th in Hippy Haven for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
