The Sailing Savior of RMS Carpathia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Captain Arthur Henry Rostron with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.033 billion Carpathians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle upon Tyne. The average income tax rate is 17.7%.

The strong Carpathian economy, worth 654 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 72,422 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, there's no weight to modern politics, and all restaurants close before dinner time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. RMS Carpathia's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

RMS Carpathia is ranked 192,290th in the world and 645th in 10000 Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
