The Kingdom of Cartures is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maarten Jonathan III with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The cynical population of 2.196 billion 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 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 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Carturesian economy, worth 368 trillion Floreins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 167,881 Floreins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. 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 73,789th in the world and 3,323rd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,781.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
