The Limbless Empire of Carthatska is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President Serge Maitre with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 901 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 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carthatskan economy, worth 89.3 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 99,132 Carthages, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the weather in Nouméa is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. 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 223,705th in the world and 7,424th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 42.83 Whatever.
