The Kingdom of Turis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Iger II with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.026 billion Turisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashpoint. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Turisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,642 trillion polar globes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 164,888 polar globes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Turisian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and Iger II's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. Crime is totally unknown. Turis's national animal is the bovine anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Turis is ranked 2,979th in the world and 5th in Antarctica for Largest Governments, scoring 47.32 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
