The United Kingdom of Tuporia is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 108 million Tuporians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tuporian economy, worth 5.14 trillion Zronks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,595 Zronks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Tuporia, and copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuporia's national animal is the Southern Tuporian Mountain lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tuporia is ranked 37,068th in the world and 1,602nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,745.11 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
