The Ecclesiastical Meritocracy of Spiritual Republic of Caryton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dorothy Shirleyton with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and national health service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.267 billion Carytonic are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgine. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carytonian economy, worth 247 trillion Cary Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 108,996 Cary Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué, financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, and the teaching of evolution has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spiritual Republic of Caryton's national animal is the Golden Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Gospel Church of Caryton.

Spiritual Republic of Caryton is ranked 27,324th in the world and 59th in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Average Incomes, with 108,996.93 Standard Monetary Units.
