Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Nomadic Peoples of Turnstile Number 1 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Turner with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.387 billion Turnstile Number 1ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — 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 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth 942 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 76,103 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

A dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 48th in Professor Hells Bot World and 111,052nd in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
