The Democratic States of Tornnland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 349 million Tornnlandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Tornnlandian economy, worth 12.3 trillion tornns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 35,237 tornns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, Tornnlandians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime is totally unknown. Tornnland's national animal is the caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tornnland is ranked 30,592nd in the world and 50th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,562.67 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
