The Rip-off South Korea of Cartero is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Thomas Paine with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 858 million Carterons 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Cyberse. The average income tax rate is 58.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carterite economy, worth 110 trillion Sazzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 128,882 Sazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and Thomas Paine has just been declared ruler of Cartero in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartero's national animal is the Nautilus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cartero is ranked 23,558th in the world and 1,193rd in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 13,963.86 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
