The Kingdom of Cartures
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Kingdom of Cartures is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 854 million Carturesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carturia. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 115 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 135,342 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cartures's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
