The United Kingdom of Tuporia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King toby I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The cynical population of 857 million Tuporians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanorp City. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tuporian economy, worth 49.0 trillion Zronks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,199 Zronks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

In government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Tanorp City, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuporia's national animal is the Southern Tuporian Mountain lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tuporia is ranked 97,841st in the world and 4,223rd in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 93,105.58 Standard Monetary Units.
