The People's Republic of Caribbia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Wiremu Kauri with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.464 billion Caribbeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yeir. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.3%.

The powerhouse Caribbean economy, worth 114 trillion Pirongs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 78,140 Pirongs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,971 per year while the poor average 14,335, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

The most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father", Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caribbia's national animal is the Caribbean Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Caribbia is ranked 266,595th in the world and 1,393rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.54 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
