The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.041 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. 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 25,013th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.097 Stalins.
