Regional Influence: Diplomat
The Democratic Republic of Turis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Iger with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.703 billion 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 Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashpoint. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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.
