The Communal Union of Karnozia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Warner II with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 947 million Karnozians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsda. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karnozist economy, worth 93.3 trillion francs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,477 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's more vermin than ever on the metro, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karnozia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karnozia is ranked 240,259th in the world and 347th in Thaecia for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
