The United Kingdom of Carvell is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 422 million Carvellians 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, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Carvellian economy, worth 36.4 trillion Punts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,165 Punts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carvell's national animal is the sound of silence, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carvell is ranked 29,450th in the world and 302nd in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 48.04 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
