Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Suffete with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.765 billion Aturkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odrianaple. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Aturkian economy, worth 116 trillion Trapes a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 11,927 Trapes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 35,463 per year while the poor average 3,144, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, the Aturkian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aturkia's national animal is the Bactrian camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sockism.

Aturkia is ranked 1st in Tellius and 25,738th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
