CurrencyTorchlandic Pound

The Commonwealth of United Tropics of Torchland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ian Smith with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.79 billion Torchlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Torch and Salisbury. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Torchlandic economy, worth 913 trillion Torchlandic Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 240,967 Torchlandic Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. 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 90,659th in the world and 291st in United Kingdom for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,421.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
