The Holy Methodist Empire of Kario and Nix is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord General Nelson Van Kario with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.354 billion Karnixions 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 prioritizes Defense, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondar - Kemet. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Karnixon economy, worth 210 trillion Kanixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,097 Kanixes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 444,686 per year while the poor average 43,039, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, Lord General Nelson Van Kario's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kario and Nix's national animal is the Grim Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is United Imperial Methodist Church of Zen.

Kario and Nix is ranked 3,916th in the world and 323rd in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 14,638 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
