The Dominion of The Isle of Carlsbean is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Carlsbean with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.51 billion The Isles of Carlsbeanian are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carlsbean. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Gambling.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. Crime is a serious problem. The Isle of Carlsbean's national animal is the Carlsbean, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Carlsbean, and its currency is the carlsbean.

The Isle of Carlsbean is ranked 687th in Lazarus and 19,076th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 46 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
