Karlovich

The Empire of Karlovich is a small, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 26 million Karlovichians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 20.4%.

The strong Karlovichian economy, worth 1.63 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 62,657 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, Leader's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and the Man in the Plastic Mask has been imprisoned in the Capital Penitentiary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlovich's national animal is the Smirnoff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Karlovich is ranked 68,229th in the world and 29th in United States of UBG for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 71.31 Workforce Participation Rate.
