The Free Land of TorNaGul is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Luca Aeris with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.207 billion TorNaGulians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libria. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TorNaGulian economy, worth a remarkable 3,494 trillion yeasts 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 191,920 yeasts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, high school bands practice by moonlight, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TorNaGul's national animal is the blub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Void.

TorNaGul is ranked 223,585th in the world and 6,318th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -18.91 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
