Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Nomadic Peoples of Turnstile Number 1 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Turner with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.906 billion Turnstile Number 1ians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of One Good Turn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion units a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,603 units, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, tabloids coo over President Turner's expected child, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable 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 29th in Wheels of Boredom and 144,981st in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
