The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.949 billion King Carlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 22,498 trillion lats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 625,846 lats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,969,441 per year while the poor average 77,841, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Most King Carlian video games are banned in other countries, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, a soldier's body is a temple, and if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... King Carlian satellites can detect it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 117,823rd in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42 on the Rand Index.
