OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Turis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iger with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.642 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.

Anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 16th in Antarctica and 10,571st in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 11 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
