The Technocracy of Karazan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-General Cael with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and digital currency. The compassionate, humorless population of 17.652 billion Karazanites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, 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 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karazanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,526 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 199,793 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. 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 45,183rd in the world and 2,350th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,001.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
