The Protectorate of Tulkas is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 14.672 billion Tulkasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 39.4%.

The large but inefficient Tulkasian economy, worth 658 trillion Fists a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,909 Fists, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, membership in the state-owned Church of Tulkas is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tulkas's national animal is the Fauna, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tulkas is ranked 70,089th in the world and 48th in Middle Earth for Most Conservative, scoring 63.09 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
