LeaderJosé Ramírez and Serafino Uriburu


The Socialist Oligarchy of Kartujia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by José Ramírez and Serafino Uriburu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.159 billion Kartujans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Endike. The average income tax rate is 31.4%.

The Kartujian economy, worth 55.3 trillion kalyés 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 47,708 kalyés, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

José Ramírez and Serafino Uriburu's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kartujia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Kartujia is ranked 17,920th in the world and 990th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.19 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
