The Empire of Rototornik is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Stanislav Zelko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.961 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miscarcand. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient 'Tornikian economy, worth an astonishing 13,127 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 822,487 Torniks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents. 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 21,427th in the world and 3rd in Otoris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
