The Eternal Ranger of Karputsk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by William Attlee with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.999 billion Karputskians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prutin. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The all-consuming Karputskian economy, worth a remarkable 3,036 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,518 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, K-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karputsk's national animal is the Philip, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karputsk is ranked 5,335th in the world and 1st in Founderless for Largest Governments, scoring 40.26 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
