Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Torhill is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Irian Visby with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 2.885 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 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Torlic economy, worth 149 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. Average income is 51,805 Tormarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 2nd in Juniorgeneral Realm and 26,053rd in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 22 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
