The People's Republic of Karlos is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Karlos with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.448 billion Karlosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karlosville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,046 trillion Karlos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 164,403 Karlos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlos's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karlos is ranked 2,272nd in the world and 4th in The Internationale for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 14,068.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
