The Theocratic Federal Republic of Turkesbenizstan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Makhmalbaf Khel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.419 billion Turkbenis 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unmutinopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Turkbenian economy, worth 389 trillion Rialpians 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,117 Rialpians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turkesbenizstan's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Turkesbenizstan is ranked 253,742nd in the world and 31st in League of Diplomatic Nations for Most Politically Free, scoring 23.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
