The Democratic Republic of Cartoonia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, devout population of 8.539 billion Cartoonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gallagher. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cartoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,872 trillion Toonisuas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,240 Toonisuas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartoonia's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Toontholosism.

Cartoonia is ranked 11,353rd in the world and 21st in Greater Dienstad for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 25,439.08 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
