The Free Land of TorNaGul is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Luca Aeris with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.337 billion TorNaGulians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libria. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TorNaGulian economy, worth a remarkable 4,535 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, extremely 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 amazing 203,035 yeasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across TorNaGul, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and both criminals and civilians are DOA. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 276,064th in the world and 6,747th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -38.26 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
