The Grand Republic of Charcoaltropolis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Julius Carbones with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.485 billion Charcoaltropolisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Charcoaltropolisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,510 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 notable. Average income is an amazing 370,070 Charcoals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,401,380 per year while the poor average 67,917, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Government projects are full of waste, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. 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 206,313th in the world and 269th in New Western Empire for Safest, scoring 4.88 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
