The United Socialist States of Tulov is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arkady Rossovich with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.924 billion Tulovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tula. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tulovian economy, worth 939 trillion Tulovian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 190,888 Tulovian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, a government program is underway to revitalize Tulov's beaches, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, and saying "don't do anything that Arkady Rossovich wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime is almost non-existent. Tulov's national animal is the Blackbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Tulov is ranked 40,527th in the world and 14th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Populations, with 4.92 billion Capita.
