The Nazbol Queendom of Tornado Queendom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tornado Molly with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.077 billion Tornadoes 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 tiny, corrupt, 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. The average income tax rate is 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Tornado Queendomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,531 trillion UNDER ECONOMIC MARTIAL LAWS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 350,500 UNDER ECONOMIC MARTIAL LAWS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tornado Molly often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 209th in the world and 1st in Nazbol Revolution for Fattest Citizens, with 93.33 Obesity Rate.
