The Greater Commonwealth of United Tropics of Torchland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Pierre Poilievre with a fair hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.824 billion Torchlanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Torch and Salisbury. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Torchlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 trillion Torchlandic Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 272,595 Torchlandic Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens seem fixated on 105m x 45m rectangles, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers. Crime is totally unknown. United Tropics of Torchland's national animal is the Hornbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

United Tropics of Torchland is ranked 133,235th in the world and 315th in United Kingdom for Most Extreme, scoring 20.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
