The Great Empire of Carthegia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Ghalte Dessler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.159 billion Carthegians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baleras. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carthegian economy, worth 349 trillion Desuras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,816 Desuras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carthegia's national animal is the Gatlantean, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carthegia is ranked 7,548th in the world and 146th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 91.86 on the Human Development Index.
