Carbo Nation

Population423 million


The Community of Carbo Nation is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 423 million Carbo Nationals are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Carbo Nationian economy, worth 17.6 trillion Meals 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 41,589 Meals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, posters on 'Carbo Nationian Values' advise against being proud of Carbo Nation, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, 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 well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carbo Nation's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Carbo Nation is ranked 198,070th in the world and 1,987th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
