The Communal Union of Karnozia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Warner II with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 961 million Karnozians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsda. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karnozist economy, worth 95.0 trillion francs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,809 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karnozia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karnozia is ranked 17,705th in the world and 56th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 84.98 on the Human Development Index.
