The Free Land of TorNaGul is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Luca Aeris with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.109 billion TorNaGulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TorNaGulian economy, worth a remarkable 3,668 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, highly 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 191,990 yeasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is hoping to hear the enemy shout "you sank my battleship!", sly spies try to rely on national allies so that they don't die, third world countries are rich in "I Love Libria" t-shirts, and children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is. 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 987th in the world and 27th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 8,369.41 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
