The Holy Methodist Empire of Kario and Nix is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord General Nelson Van Kario with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.3 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gondar - Kemet. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karnixon economy, worth 574 trillion Kanixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,241 Kanixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 179,126th in the world and 7,180th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.88 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
