Carne Village (カルネ村) is a frontier village located on the border between the Baharuth Empire and the Re-Estize Kingdom, to the south of the Azerlisia Mountains, and next to a vast forest and is the hometown of Enri and Nemu Emmot.
Carne Village is a territory of the Re-Estize Kingdom and in the past, consisted with an approximate population of 120 people. Within this population in the village, the people living there at that time were divided into 25 families. The village was an average village with no real importance other then its location along the border. The main livelihood of the villagers come from the forest and their crops. This is due to the fact that the village receives almost no visitors except for some doctors looking for herbs and the tax collector who comes once a year. There were no soldiers within the village which left it unprotected from attacks.

After that, Gazef visited the village and tried his best to defend it from the Sunlight Scripture but was overwhelmed and near his death. However, Ainz teleported Gazef and his warriors to the village and finished off the Sunlight Scripture himself.

Momon, Nabe, Nfirea and the Swords of Darkness visit Carne Village to get some herb from the forest. Nfirea noticed that the village is heavily fortified compared to when he last saw it.

After Enri used the Horn of the Goblin General, the village became a home for the Goblin Troops to live in. Though it was originally a human settlement, the village has begin to openly accept various demi-human races into its midst. This was due to the trauma and death of so many of their loved ones killed by fellow humans, they felt racially betrayed.
Thanks to the acceptance of the Goblin Troop as Enri's loyal servants and village protectors, the village has steadily recovered and even grown as a new wall was constructed for added protection. Life in the village as noted by the villagers has risen to a higher degree of quality. Greater quantities of food and acquisition of valuable herbs has become possible, all thanks to the goblins and support sent to the village by Ainz Ooal Gown. However, the village still faces difficulty in recovering in terms of population. Though some of the survivors from the other raided villages have immigrated, they have convinced others to make a home on the frontiers of the Kingdom, but it is difficult due to the dangers.
Later, the village accepted the new goblins and ogres from the forest and learned about the disturbing news. Some of the monsters in the forest may start attacking their village due to territorial disputes. Enri tried to get assistance from Adventurer's Guild from E-Rantel, but failed due to lack of information and funding.
After her return, Enri was officially made the chief of the village and the villagers prepared for a potential attack. A few days later, an army of monsters attacked the village. Most of the non-combatants hid in the shelter while the rest fended of the assault. The villagers ultimately won with a few losses and a helping hand from Lupusregina Beta.

After the battle, according to Lupusregina, the villagers of Carne Village lived in harmony with Goblins and Ogres. Carne Village was later rebuilt and expanded, with over 90% of the village's population consisting of the Goblin Army that Enri had summoned. When Ainz's visit to the Dwarf Kingdom came to an end, he decided to send some dwarves over to live in Carne Village. The dwarf runesmiths ended up setting up shop in one part of the village, building magic items and with a Death Knight acting as their bodyguard.
