Karlovich

The Empire of Karlovich is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 29 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 22.3%.

The strong Karlovichian economy, worth 1.84 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 63,439 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the Man in the Plastic Mask has been imprisoned in the Capital Penitentiary, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". 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 35,191st in the world and 20th in United States of UBG for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,913.99 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
