The Holy Queendom of New Touraine is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Marie of France with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 4.909 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 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 24.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tourangeau economy, worth a remarkable 1,201 trillion livres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 244,659 livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the writing style of religious hymns often changes mid-stanza, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and major cities run on potato batteries. 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 23,426th in the world and 328th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,502.97 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
