The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 2.203 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, 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 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 370 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 168,165 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the once prosperous capital is in utter decline. 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 200,287th in the world and 7,855th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 26.81 Insults Per Minute.
