The Ecclesiastical Meritocracy of Spiritual Republic of Caryton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dorothy Shirleyton with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.445 billion Carytonic are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgine. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carytonian economy, worth 247 trillion Cary Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,381 Cary Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pros are the new cons, children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spiritual Republic of Caryton's national animal is the Golden Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Gospel Church of Caryton.

Spiritual Republic of Caryton is ranked 2,436th in the world and 15th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,792.14 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
