The Republic of Kung Ture is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.139 billion Tureans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tureanic economy, worth 735 trillion Gold Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,137 Gold Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Decongestants have replaced Gold Marks in street transactions, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, they say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, and red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kung Ture's national animal is the Giant-Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kung Ture is ranked 73,840th in the world and 2,974th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 34.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
