OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and smutty television. The cynical population of 2.117 billion Carturesians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, 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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 346 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,625 Floreins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Cartures is ranked 15,658th in the world and 804th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 78.01 Atheism Rate.
