The Holy Queendom of New Touraine is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Marie of France with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 5.193 billion Tourangeaux are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tours. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tourangeau economy, worth a remarkable 1,284 trillion Livres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 247,259 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime is totally unknown. New Touraine's national animal is the Coq Gaulois, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New Touraine is ranked 2,163rd in the world and 22nd in Europe for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 66.11 Whatever.
