Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People of Cartanacia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 709 million Cartans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barre se l'Ona. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartan economy, worth 88.0 trillion cartans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 124,087 cartans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartanacia's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cartanacia is ranked 65,659th in the world and 115th in The Internationale for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 138,742.64 Standard Monetary Units.
