The Federation of Carteiro is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 728 million Carteiroans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cartilha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Carteiroan economy, worth 105 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 144,232 rupees, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 826,124 per year while the poor average 12,150, a ratio of 68.0 to 1.

The nation's new flagship trading company deals exclusively in things no one wants, a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Leader, the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, and gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Carteiro's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Carteiro is ranked 39,493rd in the world and 3rd in URSAL for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,316.46 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
