The Carols of Lemona is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Charles Mac Carthaigh with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 1.762 billion Lemonans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lemonan economy, worth 284 trillion Dogecoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,560 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, most citizens in Lemona are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lemona's national animal is the Imperial Gecko, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lemona is ranked 22,825th in the world and 42nd in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,728.01 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
