The Socialist Union of Kerla is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jacob Randall with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.28 billion Kerlans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abbott. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlan economy, worth a remarkable 6,253 trillion Thennats 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 206,530 Thennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown. Kerla's national animal is the Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Kerla.

Kerla is ranked 241,761st in the world and 5th in Anticapitalist Alliance for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -44.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
