The Socialist Democracy of Torrocca is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Representative Zvhanokvi Azvoi Kuriv with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, rampant corporate plagiarism, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.562 billion Torrossiyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luriav vy Smolniyka. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Torrossiyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,387 trillion Toruls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 153,390 Toruls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torrocca's national animal is the Great Northern Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Torrocca is ranked 153,849th in the world and 7,840th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
