Torsein

The United Socialist States of Torsein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and keen interest in outer space. The cynical population of 1.109 billion Torseinians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Torseinian economy, worth 86.7 trillion Golds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,185 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, people are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Leader, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torsein's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Torsein is ranked 38,218th in the world and 963rd in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.7 on the Human Development Index.
