The Empire of Cartolia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kulombus the II with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.921 billion Cartolians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cartolia City. The average income tax rate is 85.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cartolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,818 trillion Jarcoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 218,171 Jarcoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, most ambassadors from Cartolia retire only a few years after being appointed, and insolent whistleblowers receive their just desserts on deserted isles. Crime is totally unknown. Cartolia's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cupism.

Cartolia is ranked 140,249th in the world and 14th in Official European Union for Most Authoritarian, with 553.42 milliStalins.
