The Democratic Republic of Cartoonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.15 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gallagher. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartoonian economy, worth 854 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 205,857 Toonisuas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

An epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, unsolved crimes are often pinned on veterans with PTSD, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Toontholosism.

Cartoonia is ranked 6,203rd in the world and 5th in Greater Dienstad for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 15 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
