The Communist Proletarian Union of Carrico is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Margoza Oblongata with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 11.15 billion communists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Visa. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient communist economy, worth a remarkable 1,956 trillion Trans-Union Labour Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 175,455 Trans-Union Labour Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is playing the part of pirate hunter, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carrico's national animal is the Xoloitzcuintli, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Carrico is ranked 271,043rd in the world and 1,764th in The Communist Bloc for Most Avoided, scoring 0.44 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
