The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.315 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. The average income tax rate is 37.0%.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 25,386 trillion lats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 680,337 lats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, the thought of funding space programs drives Leader crazy, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, and morality classes are compulsory for all school students. 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.

King Carl is ranked 132,659th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 714.26 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
