LeaderEmperor Miska I auf Karelignia


The Empire of Karelignia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Miska I auf Karelignia with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.772 billion Karelignians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grönholm. The average income tax rate is 41.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Karelignian economy, worth 459 trillion Karels a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 165,815 Karels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and visions of giant pink Bears are a common side effect after Karelignians eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karelignia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Suomenusko.

Karelignia is ranked 1,288th in the world and 65th in Osiris for Most Devout, with 8,388.28 Prayers Per Hour.
