The Empire of Fresh Carthage is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Dido with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 8.429 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Fresh Carthagean economy, worth a remarkable 1,955 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 231,965 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. 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 62,351st in the world and 1,525th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 872 billion Standard Monetary Units.
