The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.032 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.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Aturkia. 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 4th in The Nition of Pepele tat Cantt Speall and 105,726th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
