The Grand Republic of Charcoaltropolis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Julius Carbones with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.592 billion Charcoaltropolisians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charcoaltropolis. The average income tax rate is 9.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Charcoaltropolisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,980 trillion Charcoals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 429,684 Charcoals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, hell is not always other people, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Charcoaltropolis's national animal is the Charcoaltolian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Charcoal.

Charcoaltropolis is ranked 193,843rd in the world and 166th in New Western Empire for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 714.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
