The Queen's State of Carruthers is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.404 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4%. A small private sector is dominated by the Retail industry.

Voting is voluntary, all tariffs have been abolished, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is pervasive, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Carruthers's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.

Carruthers is ranked 348th in Japvia and 104,472nd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -2 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
