The Phoenician Kingdom of New Carthagea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Christophe II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.847 billion New Carthaginians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenicia. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Carthaginian economy, worth 295 trillion Sphaeras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,722 Sphaeras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, for just a few extra Sphaeras New Carthaginians can get new driving records with their new cars, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and Christophe II has just been declared ruler of New Carthagea in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Carthagea's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Carthagea is ranked 253,863rd in the world and 6,843rd in Lazarus for Most Patriotic, with 0.94 flags saluted per person per day.
