The Cheese-loving domain of Camarthen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The supreme serene Servalan with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.466 billion Camarthens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyonnesse. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The large but sluggish Camarthenish economy, worth 656 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,717 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Camarthenish language, tourists visit Camarthen to mass-moon Camarthenish politicians, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Camarthen's national animal is the Hippopotomus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Camarthen is ranked 2,340th in the world and 141st in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.83 Years.
