The Egalitarian Democracy of Karteria is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Lilian Bordeaux Gray with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.809 billion Karterians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liliana City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Karterian economy, worth 749 trillion Kars 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,079 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, President Lilian Bordeaux Gray signs the laws but abides by none of them, and parents dread their examinations more than their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karteria's national animal is the White-Tailed Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Karteria is ranked 73,331st in the world and 54th in New West Indies for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.63 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
