The Armed Republic of Carricka is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 320 million Carrickans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collins. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Carrickan economy, worth 17.6 trillion Punts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,101 Punts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in Carricka have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carricka's national animal is the Revolutionary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carricka is ranked 53,332nd in the world and 815th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.72 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
