The Kingdom of Tussel is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Tussetuss with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.947 billion Tussians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tussel Capital City. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tussie economy, worth a remarkable 2,361 trillion Gnurfs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,623 Gnurfs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

King Tussetuss's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, and Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling'. Crime is totally unknown. Tussel's national animal is the Flying moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is illegal.

Tussel is ranked 172,443rd in the world and 3,988th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.05 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
