The Imperium of Karazan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kael with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.721 billion Karazanites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Risaak. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,233 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,652 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

High school bands practice by moonlight, the government-sponsored autobiography 'An Emperor Kael For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Emperor Kael's supporters, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karazan's national animal is the Miniature Tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Imperatus.

Karazan is ranked 2,009th in the world and 126th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.11 Years.
