|Leader||Maarten Jonathan III|
The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.685 billion Carturesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carturia. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 467 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,157 Floreins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and nations that kill a Carturesian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartures's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
