The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.078 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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 337 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,635 Floreins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, slaves aren't half the men they used to be, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. 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 242,225th in the world and 9,227th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
