The People's Republic of Carios is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 56 million Cariosians 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.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 11.9%.

The Cariosian economy, worth 3.40 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 60,701 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and the average cargo freighter spends more than half its service life undergoing safety inspections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carios's national animal is the Crow.

Carios is ranked 80,575th in the world and 4th in The Will of the Last Call for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,626.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
