The Revolutionary Anti-Centrists of Tornado Queendom is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Tornado Molly with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.286 billion Tornadoes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tornado City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tornado Queendomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,619 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 316,127 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,940,888 per year while the poor average 3,100, a ratio of 948 to 1.

Children are encouraged to chase pigeons, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tornado Queendom's national animal is the Tornado, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Holy Church of Tornadoes.

Tornado Queendom is ranked 1,658th in the world and 11th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Highest Average Incomes, with 316,127.42 Standard Monetary Units.
