The Grand Republic of Charcoaltropolis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Julius Carbones with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.013 billion Charcoaltropolisians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charcoaltropolis. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Charcoaltropolisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,925 trillion Charcoals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 392,036 Charcoals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, rock and roll involves rolling literal rocks in prison, tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Charcoaltropolis's national animal is the Charcoaltolian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Charcoal.

Charcoaltropolis is ranked 129,657th in the world and 133rd in New Western Empire for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 198.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
