The Matriarchy of Greater Cartona is a massive, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 4.557 billion Greater Cartonans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Greater Cartonan economy, worth 277 trillion E-Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 60,962 E-Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, bars are packed at all hours, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Cartona's national animal is the Domesticated Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Cartona is ranked 140,079th in the world and 5th in Degrasse for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 26.98 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
