Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Nomadic Peoples of Turnstile Number 1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Turner with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 13.309 billion Turnstile Number 1ians 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, 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. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,618 trillion units a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Uranium Mining industry. Average income is an impressive 121,573 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All news sources are under strict government control, calling out of the blue has become taboo, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, and citizens must pay to enjoy Turnstile Number 1's pristine beaches. 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 35th in Wheels of Boredom and 115,446th in the world for Best Weather, with -264 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
