The United Kingdom of Carvell is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.644 billion Carvellians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The all-consuming Carvellian economy, worth 177 trillion Punts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 107,854 Punts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carvell's national animal is the grote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Carvell is ranked 177,833rd in the world and 1,623rd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 55.0 billion Standard Monetary Units.
