The Z Day Survivor of Karmagedon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Awto Krat with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.703 billion Karmagedonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happy Land City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Karmagedonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,152 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 245,065 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 748,625 per year while the poor average 62,180, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Voting is compulsory, Awto Krat's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, politicians are often referred to as thesauruses behind their backs, and grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Karmagedon's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karmagedon is ranked 10,604th in the world and 378th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 92.15 Atheism Rate.
