The Papal Protectorate of The Tory Islands is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.352 billion Tory Islanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dyserth. The average income tax rate is 29.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tory Islandsian economy, worth 428 trillion Libraes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,800 Libraes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, missionaries learn the hard way that their piercing spiritual insights are no match for arrows, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Tory Islands's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Tory Islands is ranked 66,185th in the world and 8th in Federation of Fat Beer Monarchies for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,813.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
