The United Socialist States of Tulov is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Arkady Rossovich with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed population of 5.34 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 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tulovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 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 193,244 Tulovian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, nations that kill a Tulovian can expect a strongly worded letter, and popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Tula River. 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 14,157th in the world and 23rd in Conch Kingdom for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 78.93 Effective Tax Rate.
