The Democratic Republic of Cartoonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.889 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 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cartoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion Toonisuas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 212,835 Toonisuas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness. 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 3,852nd in the world and 9th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 18,377.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
