Carnia is a mainly alpine region.
Used as a staging area during the Euro-Wars, the local infrastructure was never repaired after the fighting had ended.
Neglected infrastructure and an unobtrusive out of the way location has left the country an undeveloped mostly rural country surviving on a pastoral economy. Extra income is brought in by the Mafia and Balkan organisations using it as a staging area on their arms and smuggling pipeline to the Balkans.
Due to its location it's used as a good backdoor to slip into and out of the Balkans.
