The Dts and cnts of Carrelie is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Edith-Marie with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.379 billion Carrelians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mont-Sanguine. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carrelian economy, worth 593 trillion valires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,543 valires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Treason is relative, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carrelie's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Carrelian Protestantism.

Carrelie is ranked 13,262nd in the world and 365th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 89.16 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
