Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Carruthers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.371 billion Carruthersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The very strong Carruthersian economy, worth 377 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 30,496 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,678 per year while the poor average 151, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, all tariffs have been abolished, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Carruthers's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Carruthers is ranked 75,603rd in the world and 871st in Ancient Lands for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
