The Empire of Carindell is a huge, safe nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 828 million Carindellians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meraki. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Carindellian economy, worth 37.7 trillion Runas 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 45,587 Runas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carindell's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Carindell is ranked 188,207th in the world and 1,841st in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
