The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.7 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 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.

Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and Odrianaple spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 1st in The Nition of Pepele tat Cantt Speall and 40,050th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -6.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
