The Technocracy of Karazan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fabricator-General Cael with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 19.495 billion Karazanites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 Telok Peak. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,916 trillion Credits a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,906 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Karazan is ranked 84,985th in the world and 3,645th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,597.91 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
