The Federation of Torrenti is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Giovani Aerfeatherr II with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.013 billion Torrentians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torrent City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The very strong Torrentian economy, worth 141 trillion Lapoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 70,155 Lapoes, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, Torrenti has designated Torrent City as its capital city, every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, and Giovani Aerfeatherr II has just been declared ruler of Torrenti in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Torrenti's national animal is the Griffon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Torrenti is ranked 30,986th in the world and 921st in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71 on the Rand Index.
