|Capital||The Dark Carousel|
The Confederacy of TheDarkCarnival is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.331 billion Clowns 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 Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Carousel. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong crazy economy, worth 63.5 trillion Honks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Tourism. Average income is 47,733 Honks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians spend a lot of time hanging around kids' playgrounds, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, more and more people are signing up for the government party, and TheDarkCarnival recently decided against having a capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TheDarkCarnival's national animal is the Clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
