Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sailing Savior of RMS Carpathia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Captain Arthur Henry Rostron with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.17 billion Carpathians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle upon Tyne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.9%.

The strong Carpathian economy, worth 79.2 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 67,722 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', every week is blindness awareness week, and Captain Arthur Henry Rostron has just been declared ruler of RMS Carpathia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. RMS Carpathia's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

RMS Carpathia is ranked 14,850th in the world and 257th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,786.06 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
