The Confederacy of Torsiedelle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Vlad Romanov with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 19.126 billion Torsiedellies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stavropol. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The thriving Torsiedellie economy, worth a remarkable 4,068 trillion Torsiedellie Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 212,695 Torsiedellie Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Torsiedellie radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, there is a law against "filthy foreign food", and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torsiedelle's national animal is the Torsiedellie Red Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Torsiedelle is ranked 147,603rd in the world and 6,428th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -75.22 on the Rand Index.
