The Holy Empire of Kargestan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor James II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The democratic, devout population of 1.054 billion Kargestanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamesberg. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kargestanian economy, worth 84.1 trillion maltesers 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,810 maltesers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump, Emperor James II has just been declared ruler of Kargestan in an international press conference, and a degree in Emperor James II Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kargestan's national animal is the condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kargestan is ranked 198,590th in the world and 8,924th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -54.74 on the Hayek Index.
