The Socialist Imperium of Karsopolis is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Governor Sharp with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 8.505 billion Karsopolans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Administration and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Stephen. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Karsopolan economy, worth a remarkable 2,131 trillion Karsopolan Credits 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 250,613 Karsopolan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karsopolis's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Karsopolis is ranked 870th in the world and 2nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 19,115.9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
