The Community of Carolopoly is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 936 million Carolopolyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.6%.

The Carolopolyian economy, worth 57.7 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 61,651 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, untold millions of deniers are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Carolopoly's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Carolopoly is ranked 156,588th in the world and 7,305th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 11.29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
