The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.364 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.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, military spending is on the increase, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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 550th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 225 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
