Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Fresh Carthage is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Dido with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.259 billion Fresh Carthaginians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthage-on-the-Sea. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fresh Carthagean economy, worth 962 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,922 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, Empress Dido affectionately nicknames supporters by number, posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms, and students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations. Crime is totally unknown. Fresh Carthage's national animal is the War Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Didoism.

Fresh Carthage is ranked 149,971st in the world and 7,491st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
