The Mitfreude Entity of Alpha Carinae V is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Judy Tankris with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.63 billion Carinans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Drellach. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Carinan economy, worth 72.0 trillion Gold-pressed Latinum Strips 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 Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Retail. 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 27,392 Gold-pressed Latinum Strips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime is relatively low. Alpha Carinae V's national animal is the Drella, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alpha Carinae V is ranked 128,541st in the world and 138th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Highest Economic Output, with 72.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
