Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.719 billion Aturkians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odrianaple. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but sluggish Aturkian economy, worth 406 trillion Trapes a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. 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 52,599 Trapes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Aturkia, graffiti graces every city's streets, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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, and its national religion is Sockism.

Aturkia is ranked 1st in Tellius and 1,518th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 19 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
