Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Subterranean Fortress of Torranta is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Erú Ilúvatar with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 933 million Archaeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ithilien. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The powerhouse Arcane economy, worth 113 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 121,565 Mithrils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 431,062 per year while the poor average 24,729, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Torranta's national animal is the Eglat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Torranta is ranked 33,719th in the world and 35th in Lands End for Nudest, with 189 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
