The Fourth Dimensional Manifold of Kung Ture is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arkus Corztuan with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.762 billion Tureans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underground. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tureanic economy, worth 984 trillion Gold Marks 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 large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 145,632 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kung Ture's national animal is the Goran Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kung Ture is ranked 14,525th in the world and 35th in Enadia for Highest Average Incomes, with 145,632.34 Standard Monetary Units.
