The Stoic Kingdom of Thuran Eth is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Torbejǫrn with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The cynical population of 5.534 billion Turanians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasan Túr. The average income tax rate is 35.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Thuran Ethian economy, worth 250 trillion toraners 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 45,224 toraners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turanians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, Thuran Eth has designated Vasan Túr as its capital city, and Torbejǫrn has just been declared ruler of Thuran Eth in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thuran Eth's national animal is the Great Blue Heron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Thuran Eth is ranked 185,292nd in the world and 18th in Selene for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.7 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
