The Free Land of TorNaGul is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Luca Aeris with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.151 billion TorNaGulians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libria. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TorNaGulian economy, worth a remarkable 2,853 trillion yeasts 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 176,670 yeasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, bins outnumber trees in city parks, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and being dead no longer has any benefits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TorNaGul's national animal is the blub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Void.

TorNaGul is ranked 144,286th in the world and 4,531st in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.78 on the Rand Index.
