The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.198 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odrianaple. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and corporations are either above the law or corrupting it. 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 black maned lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Sockism, and its currency is the Trape.

Aturkia is ranked 3rd in The Nition of Pepele tat Cantt Speall and 120,082nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -483 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
