The Commonwealth of Turnar is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 199 million Turnarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Public Transport, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Turnarian economy, worth 8.89 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,653 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turnar's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Turnar is ranked 51,252nd in the world and 1,676th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 97.04 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
