The Empire of Rototornik is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Stanislav Zelko with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.005 billion 'Tornikians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miscarcand. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient 'Tornikian economy, worth an astonishing 14,351 trillion Torniks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 843,966 Torniks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lockers are filled with fancy underwear, much of Rototornik's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, and heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Rototornik. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rototornik's national animal is the Nigershrimp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Rototornik is ranked 183,733rd in the world and 9th in Otoris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -108 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
