Eastern Karnils

Population1.118 billion


The Federation of Eastern Karnils is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.118 billion Eastern Karnilsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Karnilsian economy, worth 141 trillion Kars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,512 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Karnils's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eastern Karnils is ranked 14,204th in the world and 750th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,019.47 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
