The Sailing Savior of RMS Carpathia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Arthur Henry Rostron with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.564 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 13.6%.

The strong Carpathian economy, worth 107 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Average income is 68,609 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, church and state are inseparable in their influence on education, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. 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 151,368th in the world and 1,100th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 74.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
