The Z Day Survivor of Karmagedon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Awto Krat with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.268 billion Karmagedonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Karmagedonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 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 241,303 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Karmagedon's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns. 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 23,457th in the world and 985th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,201.34 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
