Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queen's State of Carruthers is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.633 billion Carruthersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The very strong Carruthersian economy, worth 233 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 30,586 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 296,560 per year while the poor average 152, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, all tariffs have been abolished, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Carruthers's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Carruthers is ranked 401st in The Americas and 72,166th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -11 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
