The People of Cartanacia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.022 billion 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 enormous, 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 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartan economy, worth 127 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 125,034 cartans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, the government is overcome with ennui, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. 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 12,057th in the world and 80th in The Internationale for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 265.22 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
