Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Torhill is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Irian Visby with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 3.066 billion Torls are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wexhall. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Torlic economy, worth 167 trillion Tormarks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,492 Tormarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, the most common psychiatric diagnosis is to 'stop whining and grow up', it's always rabbit season, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torhill's national animal is the Torhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Torhill is ranked 3rd in Juniorgeneral Realm and 93,202nd in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -104 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
