The Oligarchy of Caro1inia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by John dover with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.362 billion Caro1anins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ł. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.6%.

The very strong Caro1anin economy, worth 129 trillion Dasans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 95,204 Dasans, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, movie references are legally admissible in court, and former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caro1inia's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cłğřmm.

Caro1inia is ranked 213,008th in the world and 8,139th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 273.13 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
