The Kingdom of Cartures is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 615 million Carturesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, 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 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Carturesian economy, worth 73.0 trillion Floreins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,632 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Carturesian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, Leader's new android secretary is the latest media darling, and organ donation is compulsory. 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.

Cartures is ranked 187,336th in the world and 8,120th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
