The Couch-dwelling Doldrums of Torpidity is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Dude with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.227 billion Torpitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Slum. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Torpid economy, worth an astonishing 29,454 trillion mighty beans 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 a breathtaking 974,456 mighty beans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Torpidity's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Torpidity is ranked 677th in the world and 1st in Bree for Most Inclusive, scoring 578.04 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
