The Scared of Duolingo bird of Cartero is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 590 million Carterons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carterite economy, worth 75.6 trillion Sazzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,133 Sazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 126,700th in the world and 5,880th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 832.63 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
