The Federal French Republic of Carthatska is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Serge Maitre with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 894 million Carthatskans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouméa. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carthatskan economy, worth 87.7 trillion Carthages a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 98,145 Carthages, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, children play Capture the Flag and Capture the Bigtopian General Staff at summer camps, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carthatska's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Carthatska is ranked 201,117th in the world and 6,415th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.21 Weapons Per Person.
