The Federation of New Caratonia is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.825 billion New Caratonians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Caratonian economy, worth 266 trillion Carats 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,991 Carats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, the justice of New Caratonia is considered superior to that of other nations, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Caratonia's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Caratonia is ranked 176,660th in the world and 1,056th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 426.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
