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 frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.114 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized 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 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,526 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 116,397 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eagle is one of the most popular forenames in Turnstile Number 1, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down. Crime is totally unknown, 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 28th in Wheels of Boredom and 128,552nd in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
