The Lauchenoirian Puppet of Kerlile is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rebecca Arnott with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.459 billion Kerlians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grapevale. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlian economy, worth 679 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 105,255 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kerlile's national animal is the black widow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Goddess.

Kerlile is ranked 78,824th in the world and 28th in International Democratic Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,423.81 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
