Carpiente

The Holy Empire of Carpiente is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 406 million Carpienteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Carpientean economy, worth 18.6 trillion carts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,872 carts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, nudity is frowned upon, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and glassy-eyed Carpientean wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Carpiente's national animal is the wolf.

Carpiente is ranked 172,853rd in the world and 18th in Laraniem for Largest Populations, with 406 million capita.
