Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sultanate of Aturkia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Suffete with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.395 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."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odrianaple. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The Aturkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,768 trillion Trapes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 170,086 Trapes, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Many aides in The Suffete's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and children spout "De Eeuwige Staat" involuntarily throughout the day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 1,007th in the world and 1st in Tellius for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,359.39 Tourists Per Hour.
