The Empire of Carphelia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Amaia Angel with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.165 billion Carphelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valesya. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Carphelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,194 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 193,826 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, gambling is outlawed, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Carphelia, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carphelia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carphelia is ranked 6,902nd in the world and 109th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 193,826.04 Standard Monetary Units.
