The Sailing Savior of RMS Carpathia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Captain Arthur Henry Rostron with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.076 billion Carpathians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 13.9%.

The strong Carpathian economy, worth 143 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 69,344 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, Catholicism has been named as RMS Carpathia's national religion, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. RMS Carpathia's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

RMS Carpathia is ranked 117,060th in the world and 743rd in 10000 Islands for Most Authoritarian, with 0.09 Stalins.
