The Lunar Republic of Karditan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Luna with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 19.877 billion Karditanis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fillydelphia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Karditani economy, worth a remarkable 6,425 trillion Maches a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 323,269 Maches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. Crime is totally unknown. Karditan's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Kin of Luna.

Karditan is ranked 3,032nd in the world and 2nd in Equestria for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 63.69 Whatever.
