The Egalitarian Democracy of Karteria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Taylor Thompson with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.731 billion Karterians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liliana City. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karterian economy, worth 225 trillion Kars 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,080 Kars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karteria's national animal is the White-Tailed Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Karteria is ranked 7,738th in the world and 1st in New West Indies for Smartest Citizens, with 98.64 Quips Per Hour.
