East Carelia

The Republic of East Carelia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 372 million East Carelians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vestamo. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong East Carelian economy, worth 29.2 trillion Shenanigans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 78,599 Shenanigans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, there's a hole in the heart of every East Carelian city, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Carelia's national animal is the Arctic Dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

East Carelia is ranked 123,618th in the world and 3,762nd in the West Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 608.55 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
