CurrencyTorchlandic Pound

The Greater Commonwealth of United Tropics of Torchland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Pierre Poilievre with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.476 billion Torchlanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Torch and Salisbury. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Torchlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,199 trillion Torchlandic Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 268,022 Torchlandic Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Tropics of Torchland's national animal is the Hornbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

United Tropics of Torchland is ranked 178,482nd in the world and 645th in United Kingdom for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 292.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
