The Democratic Republic of Turis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Iger with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 2.46 billion, 2.459 billion of whom are zombies, Turisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashpoint. The average income tax rate is 100%. A robust private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turis's national animal is the ris, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Polar Globe.

Turis is ranked 2,586th in Balder and 96,236th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Turis is currently considering its options.
