The Kingdom of Tussel is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Tussetuss with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.124 billion Tussians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tussel Capital City. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tussie economy, worth a remarkable 3,014 trillion Gnurfs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 199,317 Gnurfs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in King Tussetuss's bedroom, and King Tussetuss lives life on the open road - complete with groupies. Crime is totally unknown. Tussel's national animal is the Flying moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is illegal.

Tussel is ranked 139,410th in the world and 4,195th in the West Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 572.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
