The Nazbol Queendom of Tornado Queendom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tornado Molly with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.166 billion Tornadoes 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tornado City. The average income tax rate is 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tornado Queendomian economy, worth a remarkable 5,734 trillion UNDER ECONOMIC MARTIAL LAWS 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. 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 amazing 354,739 UNDER ECONOMIC MARTIAL LAWS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Tornado hunting institutions, short is not always sweet, and the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tornado Queendom's national animal is the Tornado, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanic Church of Tornadoes.

Tornado Queendom is ranked 301,689th in the world and 2nd in Reichtangle for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -42.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
