The Kingdom of Cartures is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 406 million Carturesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carturia. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Carturesian economy, worth 37.1 trillion Floreins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 91,391 Floreins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Carturesian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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.
