Eastern Karnils

Population1.149 billion


The Federation of Eastern Karnils is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.149 billion Eastern Karnilsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Karnilsian economy, worth 149 trillion Kars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 130,301 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Karnils's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eastern Karnils is ranked 160,938th in the world and 6,604th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.28 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
