Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Nomadic Peoples of Turnstile Number 1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Turner with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.492 billion Turnstile Number 1ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of One Good Turn. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,517 trillion units a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 112,460 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', Turnstile Number 1 is renowned for its lax gun laws, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turnstile Number 1's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Monotheism.

Turnstile Number 1 is ranked 17th in Wheels of Boredom and 67,480th in the world for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 0 Valid Endorsements.
