The Commonwealth of San Carlos Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kennedy Piątek with a fair hand, and renowned for its closed borders, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.259 billion San Carlos Islanders are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Carlos City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.5%.

The frighteningly efficient San Carlos Islander economy, worth 727 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 170,899 Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 564,135 per year while the poor average 38,733, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. San Carlos Islands's national animal is the Kermode bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Secularism.

San Carlos Islands is ranked 58,892nd in the world and 54th in The League of Conservative Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,368.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
