The Progressive Republic of Megacars is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Miles Earnhardt III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 16.953 billion Carisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vauxholm. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Carisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,536 trillion Nostroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,616 Nostroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Megacars's national animal is the Stangnir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Peugatti.

Megacars is ranked 153,360th in the world and 313th in Wintreath for Most Pro-Market, scoring -75.56 on the Rand Index.
