The Corporations Republic of Cartalma is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.987 billion Cartalmen are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sfax. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Cartalman economy, worth a remarkable 1,007 trillion Dogecoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 168,353 Dogecoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,014,671 per year while the poor average 12,563, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.
An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, it is rumoured that Leader uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (Cartalma has found 4 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cartalma's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular.
