The Republic of Kung Ture is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.213 billion Tureans 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.6%.
The all-consuming Tureanic economy, worth 281 trillion Gold Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 127,367 Gold Marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.
Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, and the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Kung Ture's national animal is the Giant-Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
