The Eternal Prison of Torture Tower is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Adolf Jong Stalin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.6 billion Slaves 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whipsville. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The large but underdeveloped Enslaved economy, worth 613 trillion punishments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 80,727 punishments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Torture Tower, finding half a worm in your apple is an arrestable offense, and a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torture Tower's national animal is the bloodhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Adolf Jong Stalinism.

Torture Tower is ranked 174,398th in the world and 7th in Leppikanian Puppet Storage for Most Inclusive, scoring 5.54 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
