The Grand Republic of Charcoaltropolis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Julius Carbones with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.229 billion Charcoaltropolisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 9.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Charcoaltropolisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,760 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 rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 423,977 Charcoals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 245,422nd in the world and 207th in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -1130.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
