The Confederacy of Carthegia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 491 million Carthegians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alta Vargelein. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Carthegian economy, worth 43.9 trillion Carthens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,453 Carthens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carthegia's national animal is the Trudeau, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carthegia is ranked 140,670th in the world and 1,218th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.11 on the Rand Index.
