The Great Empire of Carthegia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Ghalte Dessler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.761 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 medium-sized, 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 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carthegian economy, worth 284 trillion Desuras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 161,475 Desuras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and military pistols are more secure than the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carthegia's national animal is the Gatlantean, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Carthegia is ranked 33,137th in the world and 391st in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,651.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
