The Armed Republic of Torkiuistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comité Militar Central De Dirigencia with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.916 billion Torkiuistanians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kurtziafd. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Torkiuistanian economy, worth 146 trillion Torkius a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,694 Torkius, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War criminals are given full state funerals, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and the nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torkiuistan's national animal is the Falfa, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ateísmo.

Torkiuistan is ranked 244,894th in the world and 5,682nd in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -16.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
