The Confederation of Carrelie is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Edith-Marie with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 11.216 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mont-Sanguine. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carrelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,639 trillion valires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,178 valires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mountain rescuers refer to their new gear as the 'watchamacallits' and 'thingymabobs', sleeping on the job is recommended, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards. 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 Church of Carrelie.

Carrelie is ranked 7,216th in the world and 1st in Novapax for Nicest Citizens, with 38.68 average smiles per day.
