The Pagan Commune of Torregal is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Popular Liberation Front with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.219 billion Torregalxes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Brigida. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Torregalese economy, worth a remarkable 3,905 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 274,700 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime is totally unknown. Torregal's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pagan liberation theology.

Torregal is ranked 238,730th in the world and 2nd in The Cascadia Soviet for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -34.7 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
