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 renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.729 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, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of One Good Turn. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,096 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 86,125 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, military service is compulsory, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and notable individuals are granted land and titles. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 32nd in Wheels of Boredom and 139,014th in the world for Safest, scoring -424.059 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
