The United Socialist States of Torsiedele is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emanuel Gordelstein with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 2.969 billion Torsiedeleans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wqurg. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Torsiedelean economy, worth 69.8 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 23,511 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torsiedele's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cult of personality.

Torsiedele is ranked 41,123rd in the world and 18th in Oneid for Largest Governments, scoring 19.7 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
