The Alliance of Mist Carthara Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Esther Berlioz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 3.722 billion Mist Carthara Islandsians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ninea Point. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The powerhouse Mist Carthara Islandsian economy, worth 249 trillion vitsas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,917 vitsas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,272 per year while the poor average 11,194, a ratio of 24.0 to 1.

Parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Esther Berlioz to cartoon bears, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, and armed police units patrol the roads late at night. Crime is moderate. Mist Carthara Islands's national animal is the kiwi, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

Mist Carthara Islands is ranked 54,470th in the world and 52nd in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Most Influential, scoring 792 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
