The Holy Queendom of New Touraine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Marie of France with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, soft-spoken computers, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.443 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 medium-sized, 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 77.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tourangeau economy, worth 259 trillion livres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 180,121 livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Touraine's national animal is the Gallic Rooster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New Touraine is ranked 62,590th in the world and 461st in Europe for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 39,806.95 Standard Monetary Units.
