The Janoid dynastic empire of Torshavnese Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Jan IV with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.198 billion Tˇrshavnese 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tˇrshavn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tˇrshavnese economy, worth 785 trillion tˇrshavnar kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,193 tˇrshavnar kronor, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 558,241 per year while the poor average 49,152, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, gang members supplement their income by teaching at elementary schools, the Torshavnese Empire Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, and pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torshavnese Empire's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christhianity.

Torshavnese Empire is ranked 11,206th in the world and 178th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 94.73 law-abiding acts per hour.
