The Federation of Torrenti is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 407 million 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 prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The very strong Torrentian economy, worth 28.9 trillion Lapoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 71,119 Lapoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 205,082 per year while the poor average 19,578, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

The prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, fat-shaming is now public policy, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Torrenti's national animal is the Griffon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Torrenti is ranked 70,113th in the world and 2,290th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 54.59 on the Human Development Index.
