The Eternal Prison of Torture Tower is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Adolf Jong Stalin with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.693 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, with Law & Order, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whipsville. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The large but underdeveloped Enslaved economy, worth 904 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. 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 84,588 punishments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The "Rump Diet" is all the rage, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, reddish-brown is the new black, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. 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 217,622nd in the world and 8th in This Game for Nudest, with 3 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
