The People's Republic of Karlos is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Karlos with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.677 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 average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Karlosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 trillion Karlos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 158,003 Karlos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Karlos have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 206,121st in the world and 462nd in The Internationale for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -28.35 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
