|Leader||Maarten Jonathan III|
The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.829 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, socially-minded, 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 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 298 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,098 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. 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.
