The Federal Republic of New Carloso is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Carl Tobin with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.397 billion Carlossians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Carlingford. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape New Carloso, the government is funneling billions into Cape New Carloso following the shuttle crash, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Carloso's national animal is the Ebonheart Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Dero.

New Carloso is ranked 3rd in The ACSN and 4,089th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
