Kung Ture

Population3.443 billion

CapitalThe Underground

CurrencyGold Mark

The Republic of Kung Ture is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.443 billion Tureans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tureanic economy, worth 428 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, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 124,423 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, it's illegal to blow things up, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kung Ture's national animal is the Giant-Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kung Ture is ranked 71,748th in the world and 4,140th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,537.3 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
