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 remarkable for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.547 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 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Turnstile Number 1ian economy, worth 965 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 76,964 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, governments opposing Turnstile Number 1 are beset by rebels, and the police force is on a recruitment drive. Crime is a major 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 139,737th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -166 Smiles Per Hour (net).
