The Constitutional Monarchy of Cartagonia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the High King Jose Alfonso I with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.074 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Equality and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plaza del Lago. The average income tax rate is 42%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, loans are available for students from poor families, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cartagonia's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartagonia's national animal is the Testudo graeca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the duro cantonal.
