OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Peoples Republic of Carsaig is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.54 billion Carsaigians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cnoc na Faire . The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carsaig's national animal is the haggis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the ripov.

Carsaig is ranked 4th in Urbanites and 14,561st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 159 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
