The Fourth Dimensional Manifold of Kung Ture is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arkus Corztuan with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.917 billion Tureans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tureanic economy, worth 998 trillion Gold Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 144,384 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blood on the hands of Arkus Corztuan may not be metaphorical, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kung Ture's national animal is the Goran Spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kung Ture is ranked 193,981st in the world and 340th in Enadia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 41.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
