The Subterranean Fortress of Torranta is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Erú Ilúvatar with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.488 billion Archaeans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ithilien. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The powerhouse Arcane economy, worth 181 trillion Mithrils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,960 Mithrils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 394,163 per year while the poor average 28,518, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and Erú Ilúvatar is the self-declared God of all Torranta. Crime is relatively low. Torranta's national animal is the Eglat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ardism.

Torranta is ranked 55,472nd in the world and 61st in Lands End for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 1,740.98 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
