The 4th Federal Republic of Caoripp is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Marta Polobenko with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.912 billion Caorippians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antigana. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caorippian economy, worth 652 trillion Lejs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,786 Lejs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Marta Polobenko wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caoripp's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Antiganism.

Caoripp is ranked 216,974th in the world and 1,160th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
