The Communist Proletarian Union of Carrico is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ti Kadzo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 8.281 billion Communists are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Visa. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Communist economy, worth a remarkable 1,298 trillion Trans-Union Labour Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 156,745 Trans-Union Labour Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carrico's national animal is the Xoloitzcuintli, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Carrico is ranked 2,779th in the world and 9th in North Korea for Most Secular, with 99.01 Atheism Rate.
