Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Kung Ture is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 571 million Tureans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tureanic economy, worth 69.7 trillion Gold Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 122,031 Gold Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,566 per year while the poor average 21,384, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kung Ture's national animal is the Giant-Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kung Ture is ranked 5,483rd in the world and 162nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 10,332.16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
