The Kingdom of Carrion islands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and public floggings. The cynical, devout population of 274 million Carrion islandsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Carrion islandsian economy, worth 1.37 trillion Copper coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 4,989 Copper coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, government-sponsored gallows are being erected by Violetist temples, judges are all-powerful, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carrion islands's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Carrion islands is ranked 123,723rd in the world and 63rd in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 487.9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
