The Egalitarian Democracy of Karteria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Carter Jones with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.369 billion Karterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large 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 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karterian economy, worth 174 trillion Kars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,536 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

President Carter Jones's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, nude art is becoming wildly popular, Karterian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karteria is ranked 36,041st in the world and 20th in New West Indies for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,863.49 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
