The Scared of Duolingo bird of Cartero is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 616 million Carterons are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Cyberse. The average income tax rate is 53.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carterite economy, worth 80.5 trillion Sazzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,671 Sazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cartero's radio stations, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Sazzes to support "struggling" industries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartero's national animal is the Nautilus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cartero is ranked 77,462nd in the world and 3,701st in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,517.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
