Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Suffete with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, lack of airports, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.844 billion Aturkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odrianaple. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The sizeable but stagnant Aturkian economy, worth 97.3 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 11,002 Trapes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as Aturkia's House of Parliament. 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 4th in Tellius and 130,561st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -480 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
