The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 37.76 billion King Carlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.3%.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 24,245 trillion lats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 642,093 lats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,934,957 per year while the poor average 166,113, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, military spending is on the increase, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.
