The Holy Queendom of New Touraine is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Marie of France with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 5.826 billion Tourangeaux 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tours. The average income tax rate is 33.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tourangeau economy, worth a remarkable 1,449 trillion Livres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 248,862 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime is totally unknown. New Touraine's national animal is the Coq Gaulois, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New Touraine is ranked 19,513th in the world and 133rd in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20,600.61 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
