The Eternal Dream Realm of Morturaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dael Azrael Wintergate with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.661 billion Morturarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of L'Etoile de Sang. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morturaria's national animal is the Sphinx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Yaoism, and its currency is the soul sphere.

Morturaria is ranked 321st in NationStates and 112,027th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -36 on the Hayek Index.
