The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.366 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Carl City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 19,965 trillion lats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 580,979 lats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, Leader's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, and not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. King Carl's national animal is the great leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

King Carl is ranked 772nd in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Devout, with 11,296.25 Prayers Per Hour.
