The Mysterious Airship of King Carl is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 37.963 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 Law & Order, Industry, 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 26.8%.

The frighteningly efficient King Carlian economy, worth an astonishing 25,460 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 rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 670,666 lats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,137,593 per year while the poor average 85,640, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. 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 1,000th in the world and 1st in Hattrick for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 18,412.05 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
