The Matriarchy of Caralapace is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Grand Opas with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.081 billion Caralapaceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Caralapacean economy, worth 228 trillion dineroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,748 dineroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caralapace's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Caralapace is ranked 19,886th in the world and 1,090th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
