The Eternal Dream Realm of Morturaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dael Azrael Wintergate with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.302 billion Morturarians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of L'Etoile de Sang. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Morturarian economy, worth a remarkable 8,147 trillion soul spheres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 298,436 soul spheres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morturaria's national animal is the Sphinx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yaoism.

Morturaria is ranked 160,717th in the world and 440th in NationStates for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 13 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
