The Federal Republic of New Carloso is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Carl Tobin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.186 billion Carlossians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, prison visits increase substantially during election years, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is well under control, 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 9th in The ACSN and 13,353rd in the world for Best Weather, with 69 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
