Eastern Karnils

Population1.161 billion


The Federation of Eastern Karnils is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.161 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Karnilsian economy, worth 151 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 130,089 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, war criminals are given full state funerals, and they say that Eastern Karnilsians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 10,188th in the world and 579th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,674.39 Tourists Per Hour.
