The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.416 billion King Carlians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 23,795 trillion lats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 653,441 lats, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 222,668th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -15.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
