The Renegade Nation of The Torn World is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Giratina with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.195 billion Renegades 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 Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pillar of Chaos. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, discarded pennies litter the streets, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and citizens have never heard foreign radio. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Torn World's national animal is the Ghost Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, its national religion is Distortorism, and its currency is the Spear.

The Torn World is ranked 1st in The Jedi Order and 23,720th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
