The Empire of RegiisCarmina is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Guirle Maquidermis with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.104 billion RegiisCarminans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mastisya. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RegiisCarminan economy, worth 479 trillion RegCars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 94,031 RegCars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, and the Communist Party claims that selling things for profit isn't necessarily capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RegiisCarmina's national animal is the palaocos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zaz.

RegiisCarmina is ranked 177,086th in the world and 21st in Aurrelius for Most Politically Free, scoring 37.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
