The Empire of Carindell is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by All Might with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.451 billion Weebs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meraki. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Carindellian economy, worth 382 trillion Runas 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 Basket Weaving and Tourism. Average income is 70,152 Runas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All Might's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, all the playground's a stage for Carindellian schoolchildren, and the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carindell's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Carindell is ranked 254,983rd in the world and 1,287th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
