The Kingdom of Cartures is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 621 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 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Carturesian economy, worth 74.2 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 119,514 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, reddish-brown is the new black, there's never enough space in space, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. 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 200,471st in the world and 8,794th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.4 Obesity Rate.
