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 remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.614 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 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 a remarkable 1,046 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 226,897 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is forced to join the armed forces, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, and Empress Dido often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. 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 162,988th in the world and 8,744th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.05 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
