The Sultanate of Aturkia is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by The Sultan with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.645 billion Aturkians 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.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Osiris, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 18th in Osiris and 1,057th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,817.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
