The Card Scalping Dual-Monarchy of Tornado Queendom is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Tornado Molly with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.615 billion Tornadoes are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, 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 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tornado Queendomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,485 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 264,509 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,337,207 per year while the poor average 29,097, a ratio of 46.0 to 1.

The CEO of Laws Incorporated must sign off on all new bills, Tornado Queendomian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Tornado Molly, people all over Tornado Queendom are dying of 'Mad Tornado Disease', and Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, 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 140,336th in the world and 215th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Smartest Citizens, with 20.42 Quips Per Hour.
